I have been a parent at Odyssey for 7 years. My child has flourished at odyssey. The integral education model allows a child of any age to simultaneously be challenged academically while nurturing the other vital aspects of what make us human. Through this balanced approach the students become strong independent thinkers and are truly prepared on all fronts for the challenges of growing up in our complicated society.
