School Reviews

I am currently a senior at Ocean View High School, class of 2014. If you haven't already, I recommend that you watch the "Ocean View High School: Small School, Big Opportunity" video in order to grasp a better understanding of our campus. During middle school, I chose to transfer to this school, meaning that Ocean View High School isn't my homeschool, and it is a decision that I am proud to have made. The staff here are supportive and open to all students, as well as the many programs that we have to offer: Honors, AP, IB, Business Academy, Bridges, ASB, our diverse clubs, sports, tutoring, etc. If you are searching for a school that will have a positive impact on your child's future, you are going in the right direction.
