The John D. O'Bryant School of Mathematics and Science is a diverse, supportive community of learners that engages in a rigorous and comprehensive Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics program integrated with Humanities. Our college-preparatory exam school enables our students to reach their full potential and become leaders who will shape the direction of society.
To help acclimate our new students to our school, we conduct a three-day orientation session before the start of the school year. Our 7th, 8th and 9th grade students are clustered in small learning communities which help ensure that their academic progress is closely monitored and supported.
Extra-help/tutoring is available from a variety of sources (e.g., teachers, university partners, peers).
Our academic enrichment programs include: Harvard Crimson Academy, Upward Bound Program (through various institutions), Summer Search Program, MIT Science of Baseball Summer Program, MIT STEM Summer Program, MIT SEED Academy, MIT MITES Program, John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, New England Aquarium, Museum of Science, Museum of Fine Arts.
To better prepare our students for the rigors of our Advanced Placement courses, we offer comprehensive summer “Bridge” programs in conjunction with several local universities. Our Advanced Placement classes include: Calculus (AB & BC), Physics B, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Statistics, Microeconomics, English Language & Composition, English Literature & Composition, United States History, United States Government & Politics, European History, French, Spanish Language.
We have an onsite College and Career Counseling Center.
