The OEC offers four interdisciplinary classes which utilize the natural environment of Forest Glen to teach concepts from the Texas state curriculum.
Teachers and staff take every opportunity to encourage critical thinking and immerse students in our unique setting.
Instructional groups vary in size depending on the class. While SOS Class and Native American Study are team-taught, with an average student to teacher ratio of 14:2, Pioneer Life and Natural Adventures Class use small-group instruction to better serve the students.
Outside of class time, students participate in a variety of team-building and problem solving activities that ultimately help promote a positive learning environment throughout their stay.
