It is believed that the OCS educational program should be a continuous process in the physical, social, emotional and mental development of children. Therefore, the school should provide an atmosphere in which the child may feel comfortable progressing at his/her own rate and ability. It is the charge of the school to stimulate a desire for intellectual curiosity, develop self-confidence and provide opportunities for each child to acquire the knowledge necessary to assure his/her role in a changing world. OCS should be receptive to inevitable changes in the educational process, sensitive to the individual needs and differences of children, and committed to a continuous program of professional growth. This philosophy should be continually open to re-evaluation and improvement.
