I have been in the Oyster River Cooperative School District since kindergarten. This coming spring I will have attended 12 years of schooling within the district. I cannot say how grateful I am for everything the school has done for me. If your debating attending the ORCSD school system, go for it! In recent years however the school has adopted a whole new schedule and are still trying to work out the kinks in the system. I have faith in our community that all will be worked out in the coming years.

Oyster River prepares you extremely well for college and allows you to pick classes that set you up on a specific path. The amount of classes offered provide opportunity for everyone, however there could be more flexibility in creating schedules freshman and sophomore year. The teachers are great, sometimes the course load is overbearing but overall helps to prepare you for college. If you do not want to be enrolled in classes of academic rigor, there are other paths available to you. I think that the staff does a good job of creating specialized tracks for each student depending on their strengths and what they think they want to pursue after high school, even if that is not attending a 4 year college. My experience has overall been positive. It has had its challenges academically but looking back I think it has only bettered me as I pursue a 4 year degree at a University.
I love Oyster River! We've had a few bomb scares, but the administration reacted in helpful ways that kept the students and faculty safe. I was scared, but I felt like I was in good, capable hands. I wish some of the facilities, especially relating to music and theater, were up to date and had more room. The school puts much more emphasis on flashy sports (soccer, mostly) when other sports are equally important (like swimming won 4 D2 states in a row). But also it's more sport focused than art oriented. That being said, there is a really strong art program and the music (especially orchestra) has grown and will continue to do so. The academics are great! The school is constantly creating classed tailored to the students!
