All three Oldham County High rank in the top 20 across the state, according to US News & World Report.

The 2024 U.S. News & World Report list of Best High Schools in America has been released and one OCS high school is ranked in the state’s top 10 - South Oldham High School (7th). All three of our high schools rank in the top 20, with North Oldham High School ranking 11th and Oldham County High School ranking 17th in the state. Our remarkable students, teachers, support staff, parents, and volunteers are the driving force behind this achievement!

The U.S. News rankings include data on more than 20,500 public high schools in 50 states and the District of Columbia. 

Two National Merit Finalists with superintendent and board member

At the March 2024 OCBE meeting, the Board recognized our four National Merit Finalists.

Three students from South Oldham High School, Ethan Hutchcraft, Noah Kavorkian, and Sophie Gnadinger; and one student from North Oldham High School, Vaishnavi Pendyala, are 2024 National Merit Finalists.

Each year, about 1.5 million students are entered into consideration in the National Merit Scholarship Program. These students were first chosen as semifinalists based on PSAT/NMSQT scores. Only about 16,000 students — about one-third of the high scorers — are named semifinalists. To ensure that academically talented young people from all parts of the United States are included in this talent pool, semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. They are the highest scoring entrants in each state. About 90% of semifinalists attain finalist standing and more than half of finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar title. The 2024 National Merit Scholarship winners will be announced later this year.

Students pilot drone in STEM lab

Camden Station fifth graders are finding unique ways to solve real-world problems in STEM class.

Since first grade, these Camden Station students have been deconstructing computer science problems and building algorithms. Now they are putting it all together and piloting drones on a medical mission.

Students watched a video about Zipline, a company in Rwanda that uses drones to deliver medical supplies to rural and hazardous areas. Afterwards, they were challenged to code drones and deliver supplies in a classroom simulation.

“What makes this unit special is the connections they are making between what they are doing in the STEM Lab and drone applications in the real world,” said STEM teacher, Lauren Bohn.

While flying the physical drones, their mission was to deliver medical supply packages to hospitals in remote areas of Rwanda while avoiding hazards. Their drones were fitted with 3D-printed attachments to carry the “medical supplies.” Once they successfully flew to the area, they had to drop the supplies in the hospital zone. When not flying, students spent time learning more about the various ways drones are used. Using the drone simulator, they completed realistic missions and created their own challenges in environments such as Mars, Egypt, or the Himalayas.

Through coding and piloting, students develop critical problem-solving skills while seeing their work in action. “While I hope they have fun programming,” Bohn said, “my goal is for them to see themselves doing the work of real computer scientists.”
