Welcome to West Campus
At Ogden 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.
Please note that in 2018-2019, Ogden International High School adopted a block schedule with enrichment and seminar days with early dismissal.

Updated PSAT/SAT Information
Adjustments have been made to our upcoming PSAT and SAT assessment schedules. As part of CPS' contingency plan in the event of a work stoppage, the district has decided that the Fall 2019 PSAT and SAT assessments will be administered to students on Wednesday, October 30th. 9th-11th grade students who planned to take the PSATs and 12th grade students who planned to take the SAT will have the opportunity to do so on the new scheduled test date. The original scheduled testing date of Wednesday, October 16th will instead be a regular attendance day for students. For our Ogden High School students, this means that students will be in their classes by 8:00 A.M. and will be dismissed at 2:20 P.M.

West Campus Wednesday Dismissal Reminder
To help students and parents adjust to some recent changes regarding West Campus' bell schedule, this is a friendly reminder that on Wednesdays, West Campus students will be dismissed at 2:20 P.M. This is in effect Wednesday, September 4th 2019 until the end of the school year.
Attendance Matters: Attendance Incentives at West Campus!
Being on time and present to every class is critical to your student's academic success. This is especially true under block scheduling where students attend the same class only 2-3 days out of the week. Below are incentives that Ogden HS is offering to motivate your child to be on time and present every day.
Coffee Talks with Mr. Baker
Mr. Baker will be hosting "Coffee Talks with Mr. Baker," a series of informal, yet informative, discussions with parents over morning coffee. These informal discussions will pertain to all things related to Ogden High School and allow parents to voice their thoughts and ideas to administration. The "Coffee Talks with Mr. Baker" sessions are monthly, occurring on the fourth Wednesday of every month from 7:15-8:00 A.M. The next session will be held Monday, October 21st from 7:15-8:00 A.M. in the West Campus main office. RSVP to Mr. Baker at email@example.com or just show up!
Ogden High School Cell Phone and Electronic Device Policy
Parents and students can find more information regarding our updated cell phone and electronic device policy via our Cell Phone Classroom Contract here. Parents who attended our high school registration sessions in August were made aware of these contracts. Please be advised, this policy will be enforced, regardless of whether the contract is signed or not.
