As someone who has graduated from Ocean Springs School District, I have many memories of this School and what others had talk about it as well. The hallways were for the most part were usually clean. The exception being when class period is over and everyone is moving around, even then it is not that bad. The Band was a great class and had great teachers. This class took great care of their equipment as well. The teachers in band also push us to do our best and I would say it did great results for me. Overall I would say it was a great place to be and would not have it any other way.

Academically, Ocean Springs has the best public high school in the state by a significant margin, especially considering the high level of AP and IB participation. The athletics programs are above average for Mississippi, and there’s a wide range of clubs. While there is some diversity, most children come from middle to upper-middle class families.

The three elementary are very top notch as well; you definitely can’t go wrong with any of the three.
I liked the fact that there were so many different courses presented to the students and that the teachers were constantly driving students to do their best. I would change how awful the dresscode is towards females. 4/5 of every student dresscoded were females. It made the female student body question if their education was just as important as a males’. A student should never be sent home or interrupted when trying to learn because they were showing too much shoulder or it was a “distraction.” I would also change how many days a student was allowed to miss. Only 2 absences allowed unless from a doctor. Many times throughout the year, children get sick, especially if they are stressed which causes them to be more susceptible. It isn’t realistic that a person only be allowed two absences a nine weeks without a doctor’s excuse. Some people can not afford to go to the doctor, or it’s a stomach bug and does not require a doctor — just rest and fluids.
