Overbrook Educational Center

A Message From Our Principal:

Welcome to the Overbrook Educational Center where the instruction and safety of your child is our number one priority. Our stellar staff is committed to excellence and works diligently and cooperatively in a professional and collegial manner with students, families and the community.

 

OEC as we are commonly and affectionately known, is a K-8 school which serves Visually Impaired students from all sections of Philadelphia. Students are admitted to the general education program for grades 1-8 via the lottery system. Interested families should complete a Voluntary Transfer Application known as an EH-36 at their neighborhood school by November prior to the fall they wish their child to attend.

 

Admission to the program for the visually impaired is dependent upon presentation of an ophthamological examination indicating moderate to severe visual impairment. OEC is an all inclusive community where general education and visually impaired students work and learn side by side.

 

There are many programs successfully in place to support our academic goals for students: Comprehensive Literacy, Everyday Math, Mentally Gifted, Academic Support, Writing Labs etc. In addition, students enjoy the opportunities for personal and social growth with programs such as extensive OEC Options Program (Gr. 6-8), Peace and Love (Gr. 6-8).

 

OEC shares a common goal of developing all students academically, socially and culturally through multdisciplinary units of study and problem based learning.
