Ocean Township School District (Oakhurst) Reviews
My experience at Ocean Township High School has been for the most part very well. The teachers I have had throughout my years have and will continue to be my role models. The positive energy throughout the school makes it easy and pleasant for me to come to school everyday! The diversity of students at Ocean Township is wonderful, which makes it very easy to make friends that will last a lifetime. I strongly suggest to get involved! Whether it is joining a sports team, or finding one of Ocean Townships many clubs! It is almost impossible to not find something you are interested in, and if you do Ocean makes it very easy to start a new club! Overall I would highly recommend this schools excellence to incoming students!
OTHS is an average school. It preps high school students for college and offers college rep visits, tours, and several scholarship opportunities. The teachers can be very supportive and outgoing, truly being mentors to the students. The teachers run the clubs, which there is a wide variety of, and the majority of students are involved in 2+ clubs. The school focuses more of its attention on sports, priding itself on its Friday night football games and brand new fitness center. However, the school culture is not as I expected it to be. There are no pep rallies, no school dances, and no field days. Parents are involved in the PTA, the Prom court, and several other fundraising activities. Safety is average I'd say, but this upcoming school year we are getting Class III police officers. The facilities, such as the bathrooms, classrooms, and water fountains, are in need for a facelift but no major work is necessary. The administration is friendly and helpful.
I had a great experience as a student at OTHS. I formed several great relationships with teachers and peers and I gained confidence through my active participation in various clubs and community service organizations. While creating my spartan legacy, I acquired valuable time management and communication skills, which will also help me in the future in college. In addition, it was great to notice diverse groups thrive at our school. However, if I were to change an aspect of our school it would be the current ranking system. It is not an effective system and it needs to be modified.
