Opportunity High School

Opportunity High School (OHS), a partnership school in Hartford, provides the three R's necessary to be successful in school: Rigor, Relevance and Relationships. The school is a small, academically-rigorous diploma-granting high school which combines the unique skills and expertise of Our Piece of the Pie and Hartford Public Schools (HPS), the two school partners. School governance is shared equally between the school system and OPP. In addition to HPS instruction, each student is enrolled in OPP's relationship-intensive program and is assigned a Youth Development Specialist who helps them reach their academic goals, including post-secondary education goals and employment goals.
