Our Mission and Student Learner Outcomes

Ortho's Mission 
Orthopaedic Hospital Medical Magnet High School (OHMMHS) engages students in a rigorous curriculum focused on college and career readiness.
OHMMHS provides learning experiences that focus on the acquisition of academic knowledge for application to student inquiry, problem-solving, and evidence-based argumentation while also supporting learning experiences associated with the medical field.
High standards for behavior, responsibility, accountability, and community service are embedded in the instructional setting to develop the critical thinking and social skills necessary for transition into post-secondary pathways.
