As leaders we will dedicate ourselves to inspire students to think, to care, and to achieve greatness. Within the O-Zone teachers will hold ALL students to high expectations in order to close the achievement gap and get them college ready. Staff, students, parents, and the community will be culturally aware, respect differences, and celebrate diversity. We will always do what’s best for students.

 Department Clubs

French Honor Society

French Club is comprised of students who are interested in participating in French-related activities beyond the classroom. Some of the activities students enjoy are playing games, making crepes, celebrating French Christmas and Mardi Gras, and watching French films. Membership is not limited to students currently in a French class at Overland.

Spanish Club / Spanish Honor Society

Spanish Club is a place for anyone who wishes to learn more about Hispanic culture and language. The group works to promote understanding about Hispanic heritage and traditions. We share culture with the Prairie Preschoolers, Prairie Middle Schoolers and other Spanish Classes throughout the year. We also help organize Culture Night and the Cinco de Mayo celebration for OHS. Depending on the interests of the participants, we learn about food preparations, various traditional dances , art and cinema in Latin America and we participate in various competitions and conferences.

Arabic Club/Intercultural Club

Come check out this Overland club that focuses on the study of the Arabic language and the culture of all its members.

Tepochcalli

"Tepochcalli" means "House of Youth" and this group is designed as a place for kids (traditionally of Latino decent, but not limited to) to explore and reach their highest potential through experiencing rights of passage that are meaningful and will help develop self confidence, gain valuable skills as life long learners and to help serve as mentors, advocates and allies for their fellow students, thus building a stronger community and thriving students. Through games, discussions, and a multitude of activities students will be provided an opportunity to develop leadership skills, self-awareness, self-respect, disprove stereotypes, foster cultural/racial proficiency, recognize and eliminate institutional racism and celebrate one another's strengths.
