Our classrooms tend to be smaller than a traditional high school and while in school, students are immersed in a blended learning environment. What this means is that for their English and Math classes students will be in a traditional teacher-led classroom, similar to what you see in a traditional high school. For the rest of the time, students are in a lab environment working at their own pace through the rest of the classes. In the labs, there is a teacher to provide one-on-one support.
Students attend school for four hours a day Monday-Friday. You’ll have the option to attend our morning or afternoon session.
For those students who cannot attend regularly, we have the OMB Online Academy which provides greater schedule flexibility.

We are happy to welcome you to Ombudsman West High School (OMB West), home of the Warriors. Our campus offers students a flexible 4-hour schedule that is filled with engaging lessons and spirited campus activities that encourage students to reach their academic and personal goals. Whether you are looking for a smaller class size, to recover credit, graduate early, or work school into adult life responsibilities- OMB West keeps that diploma in sight.
This school year our theme is, “Elevate the Warrior within”! We will set the example for our students by modeling and helping them develop soft skills. We will prepare our students to navigate life after high school through engaging lessons that incorporate student voice. As a Microsoft Showcase School, our students gain workplace experience they can add to their resumes. Students are given opportunities to explore college, trade, and career options throughout the year. As educators, our goal is to engage students in their learning, teach them accountability and time management. All students are assigned a mentor teacher that helps them stay on track with coursework and meet their graduation goals.
At OMB West, we are spirited and offer several opportunities for engagement:
- Fun Fridays
- Job Fairs
- Student Council
