Don't be the LAST person to be wearing the latest craze! OSS Spirit wear! Hoodies and T-shirts contain original student artwork and are designed by our marketing class. Amazing, right?!
It's not just the hoodies that are amazing! Our marketing students decided to make a class project out of raising funds to buy a Smart Board for the math classroom. (LOVE our students!) For a $25 donation you will receive a hoodie (black only), and for a $20 donation you will receive a short sleeve T-shirt (black or white). They are trying to raise $4000! Will you help them attain their goal? (AND promote OSS!)
The "Light it Up" logo on the front is the school motto for the year encouraging our students to be "light" in their community. The lion on the back is original artwork by Devon, one of the marketing students.

Welcome to our website!
The Omaha Street School, a faith-based alternative high school, located in Omaha, Nebraska, puts at-risk youth on the road to success. Omaha Street School focuses on dropout prevention by offering a personalized education, a moral code, and tools for self-sufficiency through non-traditional approaches.
The 9th-12th grade high school students at OSS have typically not succeeded in traditional public or private schools, and many arrive with significant learning deficiencies. Students come from the recommendations of current/former students, community partners, and the juvenile justice system. OSS offers low student to teacher ratios, individualized student learning plans and a focus on career pathways.
The OSS Future Focus program is designed to move clients, ages 17 and older, towards job readiness or continuing education. Programs include individualized GED tutoring and job skills certification opportunities in collaboration with community partners.
The Omaha Street School is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
