School Reviews

  • Recommended April 14, 2014 - 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.

White Students are Now the Minority in U.S. Public Schools
Increasing birth rates among immigrant families from Asia and Central and South America, combined with lower birth rates among white families, means that for the first time in history, public school students in the United States are majority-minority.
