Many OFS participants come to the OFS classroom having experienced failure in traditional schools.
OFS¡¯ goal is to help students overcome fear and frustration they often feel toward school work.
OFS provides an individualized learning environment in which certified teachers and skilled tutors provide small group and one-on-one instruction.
The teacher/student ratio for most lessons is 1:5.
For those studying the Basic Skills Curriculum, the ratio is 1:1.
Typically, OFS students spend 2-4 hours daily in the classroom and the remainder of the day on the service site.
