OSNAS is a school centered around four Core Values – Integrity, Family, Excellence, and Enthusiasm, one for each quarter. The teachers of OSNAS choose one student from each grade that they feel best exhibits the Core Value assigned to that quarter. Similar forms of this tradition date back to the early 1990’s when the school first opened.
The Student of the Quarter award for Integrity gives young scholars something to strive for that not only encompasses academic performance but also the value of character and treating others around them with respect. The school defines Integrity as “We do what’s right regardless of the situation.”
