Ocean City School District Reviews

Very good overall. An average high school experience. Focused heavily on sports culture and loved it. The faculty and staff are very helpful and open to their students. However, the school lacks diversity. I would like to see change in the school’s attention to bullying. Other than that, OCHS has been a welcoming learning experience to me. I liked the energy in the school and the environment.

Ocean city high school is a school that offers great college preparatory options. The counselors are always available to help with questions or course choices. The teachers are highly qualified in their course work, they make sure to offer assistance at any time with work. One thing that might make Ocean City even better is more options for students who would like to go into the computer field, an intern program with outside companies.
Moving from a small town in Maryland to another small town in New Jersey was the best thing to happen to me. I went from the bottom of my class in Maryland to the 146/315 students in OCHS. I can tell you that I have learned a lot more here than I would’ve at my school in Maryland. Although I have to say that if you’re not rich or pretty you get left out of a lot of high school experiences. There are a lot of cliques and exclusive groups in Ocean City and that starts at young ages. I can say that in Ocean City schools you get kids with a lot of money or very little money and it make its tough to fit in. I graduate this year and I can say that I lacked a typical high school experience and didn’t find a group of friends that were actually good people until my junior year. But over all the academics are good, 90% of the teacher and kind and know what they are doing and I can say that I’ve learned a lot in my 6 years in the Ocean City school district.
