We are pleased to present OES’s 2015–16 Annual Report. In it, you will see abundant evidence of an exceptional year.


This year, our students have achieved extraordinary success. Whether they were researching and creating solutions to vexing problems, writing and performing brilliant plays, volunteering at partner organizations such as Clay Street Table, or winning state championships, they were fulfilling our vision of connecting people, ideas, and cultures to advance knowledge, create solutions, and enhance meaning.


This year we also realized the dream of a new Lower School. Over the past four years, we have imagined and planned what the classroom experience could be like for our Pre-K through fifth grade students, we invested in that dream, and we built it! While the completion of the Lower School is celebratory unto itself, it also clears the path and sets the stage for continuing to achieve our larger campus vision.


It is through your generosity of time, talent, and treasure that we achieve our greatest accomplishments. More than 950 donors contributed $3.8 million in 2015–16 to our annual operations through the OES Fund and Auction, to our capital needs through Open Up: The Campaign for OES, and to our future through planned and endowed gifts.


Through every gift you make, whether it is $5, $500,000, or countless volunteer hours, you show your support for our vital community of scholars, artists, and athletes. We are grateful to each one of you for your participation and for helping to propel OES to such an outstanding year.


Thank you for all you do to help make this possible. Kate Lieber


President, Board of Trustees
