We believe students deserve personalized instruction that targets their individual needs. We provide every student with a Chromebook loaded with a variety of digital tools designed to create small-group learning communities in each subject throughout the school day. In addition, our school has between one and two teaching residents in 25 of our classrooms. The combination of digital learning tools, additional staff and an extended school day allows teaching and learning at Ogden to take a creative and distinct approach designed to have the greatest impact on student learning. Our extracurricular offerings include an art and fitness program, as well as after-school tutoring, with a teaching resident offering our neediest students additional instruction where they need it most.
