Ocean Springs School District Reviews

There were SO many teachers that cared for the students, but I believe there were only a few in the general education courses. Higher level teachers, such as the AP teacher, put so much effort into their work. Alongside that, the school was unable to justify their actions and never took responsibility when something went wrong. For example, the senior class (2020) received ruined and broken yearbooks which also did not include items such as quotes, photos, or the senior page which costed $150-$300. I believe the school definitely needs improvement and I am shocked that they treated the class that brought them to the title “Best High School in Mississippi” so horribly.

Ocean Springs is a nice community, but it seems to be a town where everyone knows your business. The school district seems to be this way also, kids learn from their parents that be nosy is good. You cant go one day without someone being the gossip of the school, especially high school. Bullying is not a huge problem, but it still happens. When it does happen, I never witnessed any teacher do anything about it. Most of the teachers are really nice. Overall the school district is a good match if you have thick skin.
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.
