A Message from the CEO

Hello OBR Community

Welcome to One Bright Ray Community High School! We’re so happy to have you here. As an accelerated learning program, we move quickly – but we always give everyone the tools they need to succeed. Don’t worry if you feel a little lost at first, we’re always here to lend a helping hand.

Despite all of the rain Philadelphia is experiencing this winter, the OBR community continues to make strides in positive directions, never letting the outside elements dictate our work ethic! With that said, we’re pleased to announce that the second half of the academic school year is off to a great start. We thank all of our students for their continuous efforts in showing up and showing out. Additionally, we thank all of our OBR team members for helping make this happen every day!
