About Omaha Virtual School
Omaha Virtual School (OVS) is a full-time, tuition-free, program within Omaha Public Schools. Our instruction is delivered through a blended learning environment, combining the benefits of the virtual and traditional classrooms. Blended learning enhances online learning with opportunities for labs, guest speakers, field trips, and other face-to-face cooperative learning.
The format of our program enables parents to be actively involved and allows students to take ownership of their learning. Students may work quickly through the areas they understand, take their time in areas that need extra attention, and put an emphasis on subjects that interest them most.
Omaha Virtual School is committed to empowering life-long learners by developing collaborative relationships. Within our community, we provide an innovative, personalized learning experience. Success in this mission will cultivate critical thinkers who have the tools to contribute to a changing global society.
