“OPT FOR SUCCESS”
Students that adhere to the 3A’s – Attitude, Attendance & Academics have numerous opportunities for leadership and success.
Gold is the common color among all high schools in the district;
Teal represents our campus and is the blending of the colors of our schools – purple, columbia blue, and green.
The combining of these colors serves as the foundation of our previous high school experiences and as a symbol of our new beginning at Options.
A mythological bird said to resemble an eagle, is reborn from its own ashes every 500 years as a new, youthful Phoenix.
The suggestion for its selection as our mascot was made because the Phoenix is a “unique bird and Options is a unique school that allows students to get a second chance and rise to new heights!”
The entire body and staff worked together to select our school colors, mascot, and motto…so our school spirit unites us toward our common goal: Graduation & TAAS/TAKS Mastery for all Options Students!!!
The school philosophy ties in with the school motto that stands for:
*Attend Class Every Day
