Lauren plays tennis, volunteers at her local animal shelter, and is involved in Stanford OHS Student Life activities. While Lauren's class schedule is in Pacific Time, many of her classmates join classes from different time zones around the world!

Time to Pursue Interests and Connect With Peers
Most classes at Stanford OHS don't meet on Fridays. This allows our more than 70 student-run clubs and organizations to meet virtually or in person on that day, giving students the opportunity to pursue other interests with their peers on their own. Friday is also a time for all-school assemblies and presentations by guest speakers.
Flexible Enrollment Options
Stanford OHS offers three enrollment options: full-time (four or five courses), part-time (two or three courses), and single course. This flexibility allows aspiring students to choose OHS as their only school or as a way to supplement their learning with niche courses not found at every brick-and-mortar school.
