STRONG VALUES AND A MISSION OF EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE
As educators, a foundation of educational and human values defines us and orients our actions:
Humanism: French education is based on the inseparable link between general culture and universal values, such as freedom, tolerance and equal dignity for all. We welcome students of all backgrounds and all beliefs into our schools, which are spaces dedicated to reason, knowledge, and the joy of learning.
Ethics: Teaching is a demanding professional act, which is accomplished through respect for the principles of loyalty, responsibility, and recognition of merit. The best interests of our students and ours schools are our priority in all circumstances. This takes precedence over all other considerations.
Benevolence: Education is a benevolent and empathetic dialogue between teacher and student. Attention paid to every individual, concern for their safety, and their inclusion, are at the heart of our identity.
Innovation: The spirit of continuous improvement is a driving force for Odyssey. It inspires us and stimulates us every day. And to nurture this culture, our Odyssey teams are encouraged to demonstrate commitment, creativity and audacity.

Leading every one of our students on their pathways to success and development, by preparing them to become enlightened, responsible, and fulfilled citizens;
Building a vibrant educational community, bringing together happy students, engaged families, and talented teachers;
