  • Mission is first and foremost at OHSUFounded by Dr. David Wiley in 2007Opened in 2009 with 125 9th gradersExpanded to 9-12 grades this year with 350 FT students and 50 PT students.
  • Creating, developing and sharing OER curriculum has served as a game-changer in the secondary education arena. Let me tell you a little bit about what that looks like for us at the Open High School of Utah:
  • I had a Principal from a school in Ethiopia stop by my office in August and thank me for all of the fabulous The Open High School of Utah curriculum that they were making good use of in Africa. It's humbling and gratifying at the same time.
  • In the wake of tragedy and destruction, the power of technology and a mission to share our quality curriculum with anyone, anywhere, anytime has allowed us to meet the academic needs of students in New Zealand without stepping one foot outside of Utah.Following a devastating earthquake that hit Christchurch on February 22, much of the city’s infrastructure was damaged or destroyed, including numerous schools. This has placed a great strain on the education system in New Zealand’s second largest city. The Greater Christchurch Schools Network (GCSN) has stepped up to play a leading role in providing support in the form of blended and online learning for teachers and students in the distressed city. The OHSU curriculum content is the largest single addition to the GCSN resources.“I want to extend my thanks for the generosity shown in making your courses available,”  shared Paul Seiler with the New Zealand Ministry of Ed. “I am slowly starting to appreciate just how widely sharing is possible if things have ‘open’ as a foundation.”
  • When the Open High School of Utah was founded in 2008, we never imagined that our mission would spread across the globe as quickly as it has. Dare to share!
