Opportunity High School (OHS) in Hartford is the first partnership school in Connecticut. Based on a model initiated in New York between Good Shepherd Services and the New York Department of Education, Opportunity High School (OHS) 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 Pathways to Success Program and is assigned a Youth Development Specialist who helps them reach their academic goals, including post-secondary education goals and employment goals.
These students have not experienced success in a traditional high school setting. OHS provides the individualized attention and intensive support services that will help youth reduce the barriers they face every day and put them on the path to academic success.< BACK
Pathways is funded in part by the US Department of Labor.
