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.

The summer season can easily distract students from staying focused on their school work, but not for OBR students – Summer Session Two has arrived! Students are working diligently as they prepare for either summer graduation or the school year ahead. Keeping your eyes on the prize is a major key to success here at OBR and we’re certainly not lacking in that department this summer.

A final word: One Bright Ray Community High School is always enrolling for future start dates, so tell your friends and family that it’s never too late to join our community! Learn more by visiting our enrollment page.

One Bright Ray Community High School is Middle States Accredited. Access the full report.
