Oceanside Unified School District Reviews

OUSD has a lot of opportunities for students in all levels of school regardless of income level or GPA. The arts and sports programs need to continue being funded, as students participating in them tend to have higher grades and citizenship. As with all schools, there are some issue teachers, but most are effective and passionate about their job. The high school math department is fantastic!

I liked the diversity of students in OUSD. At El Camino High School, there were a lot of students with drastically different backgrounds, and having that experience is a good thing to have. Other than that, we are considered an average-poor district. Compared to surrounding districts such as Carlsbad, our schools and facilities are not at the best standards for students. OUSD generally needs more investment towards choice of classes, student resources, and much bigger investments towards its extracurricular activities and the arts.
My experience in this school district has been great. Teachers are wonderful and care for their students. There are many resources available to students to be successful and college ready. I would like to see more resources for mental health in the future. We have physical therapists and trainers for us to help with physical injuries, but no strong resources for mental health issues, besides the typical school counselors—which if asked many students feel as though they can only help academically.
