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.

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.
