Who We Are: 

The Nest at Osborne High School is both a hub of support services, resources, and a set of partnerships between the school and community to provide a well-rounded educational experience for students and families. The Nest is available for all students to receive comprehensive wraparound services that meet the needs and desires of each student. The Nest is designed in response to student and family voice, needs and assets.

What We Do: 

The Nest intentionally takes a whole child approach to enhance and support students’ educational success through four pillars: Academic Support Services and Expanded Learning Opportunities, Integrated Support Services, Active Family and Community Engagement, and Collaborative Leadership. Through community collaboration, we will remove real life stressors that prevent students from succeeding academically, increase educational opportunities and resources, and equip students for life beyond high school.
