Oceanside Unified School District Reviews
I've been a student within this school district for my entire life, however I feel that my experience is completely based on my personal relationships with staff members as well as involvement with my school. For instance whenever there is an issue on campus regardless of grade level I've never had an issue with speaking to a member of administration. However I've heard from many peers that they've turned away from administration when trying to report various issues in campus. That being said most teachers, staff members and administrators are loving and caring of every respectful student they interact with. As a result this has given me the best experience with this school district. Furthermore the school district is also very open to change and willing to work with students and parents to create the best environment for everyone on every campus within the district.
There is a lot of gangs in this school district. Education is mediocre at best. They have very little funding and all the books are at least ten years old. The teachers are overworked and underpaid, and there is no sense of motivation or drive for a better future. A lot of the students come from a tough background and only believe that their future and the brightest students are held back from their potential because of the lack of resources and drive in the district. There are a few good sports but not all of them are sufficiently funded.
My time at Oceanside High School has been fun and frustrating. For years I've had my differences with administration, as I believe they don't care for the students they care about themselves only. I have put up with many ridiculous teachers who truly had no control over the class or had no idea what they were doing. On the other hand I have also had amazing teachers who truly have a passion for teaching and have completely changed my outlook on life. The culture at OHS is very welcoming and I found it easy to get along with students. Classes can be rowdy if they are not AP.
