At Ogden International we strive for excellence in our high school. This is not your "typical" public high school. Here you are a person, not a number. We are not a Selective Enrollment school. If you graduate from our 8th grade, you have the honor of moving up through our high school - continuing to be surrounded by our dedicated faculty and staff in a nurturing environment. This intimate environment allows for an individual approach to education.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) programme sets us apart as well with its trans disciplinary, inquiry-based learning allowing for a more student-led experience. We focus on our communities here in Chicago through outreach projects and walking field trips. Chicago is an extension of our classroom.
We celebrate our cultural differences through theater performances, dining out, art exhibits and exchange programs that span the globe. Our goal is to develop strong thinkers that are globally minded. The students that graduate from Ogden International have a keen sense of how to understand differences in people and are working toward a more peaceful world.
