From the Director

Welcome to Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School!


I want to take this opportunity to share information with you about our school. The mission of
Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School is to provide at-risk students, ages 16 through 19, with the necessary skills to:


  Obtain a General Education Diploma (GED)

  Achieve personal goals

  Develop leadership qualities

  Become productive citizens

  Contribute to local communities

  Respect themselves and others


In more informal terms, Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School seeks to engage minds, develop character, and build relationships with our students on a daily basis. It is a place where everyone knows your name and where amazing teachers combine traditional and innovative approaches in very small classes. Because our school is relatively small overall, it is a land of opportunity for every student. We put students in leadership positions right away, and they enjoy success throughout their time at our school. While Wil Lou Gray Opportunity School is renowned for its structured academics, we value the importance of balancing academics with arts, athletics, community service, and leadership opportunities.


I encourage you to view our tour video on this page for a virtual tour of our campus.



Thank you for visiting us!


Pat G. Smith
