Township of Ocean School District Reviews
Rating 4.17 out of 5 41 reviews
Overall, Ocean is an alright school. I don't really have many negative experiences (and for high school, that's a good sign). However, some bad things regarding the school is the bathroom policy and some unhelpful teaching methods. But in the end, Ocean is an ok school with some really fantastic teachers.
A great school! Administration needs some help with being tougher on discipline issues. Sports are ok, some sports are every gets a trophy which isn’t good for the real athletes. Like anything in life it is what you make of it. Work hard you’ll do well.
Ocean Township School District has great schools for all ages. I went here since the 2nd grade and I absolutely loved it.
A lot of opportunity for success, good teachers and plenty of class options to choose from. Very school spirited
Once this was a top school system and the biggest reason we moved to Oakhurst. However we have children in the system from high school to elementary and across the board it has become exponentially worse. There are a couple really good teachers but they are few and far between. It breaks my heart to see the poor concern and terrible atmosphere my children are suffering. Teachers don’t teach but refer the children to websites for answers and explanations. God help you if you have any children requiring extra help because this system would rather pool them into categories and be content to let them struggle and fail. It’s sad that the teachers to the administrators seem to be just out for a paycheck with summers off and as many days out as they can try to justify. Yet we pay higher and higher taxes.
Great teachers and staff in all schools. Very helpful and caring towards students. Schools are very clean and staff keeps on top of discipline, if needed. I personally had a great experience at wayside elementary, the intermediate school and high school. Teachers are always there for you especially when help is needed.
I loved being a Spartan and part of the softball team . Spartan softball changed my life. I made the team as a freshman, started second base and hit second in the line up . My team was amazing. I played with some awesome athletes and the experience just outstanding .
My overall experience at Ocean Township High School challenged me to be my best version as a student and a classmate. In the future I would like to see a more positive and friendly environment in order to take the steps to better our world.
The Ocean Township school district has never been strong, and is only going downhill. The teachers, faculty, and student body makes a students experience there arguably worse. The academics presented are not challenging and often unfair. Funding for the arts is slim to none, while our low-division sports teams get far beyond the funding they deserve. Only one teacher in the arts department is supportive and a truly good human being. The other two departments have caused hundreds of students to drop out and no longer pursue their dreams.
The school district helped prepare me for college with classes that challenged me. Having teachers and faculty that supported me throughout my four years helped me get into my dream college. The school enforced their rules and kept the school not only as a good learning environment but a safe place to be yourself and have fun.
Ocean Township High School has prepared me well for college. The teachers are well trained and understands what needs to be conveyed to a student in order for the student to understand. The sources the school offers is also excellent.
More life based classes financial , home economics. Teach kids life skills in and out of school. Must give us kids a real life class that goes through many of life’s everyday things. Mortgages, bills checks ,
I like to see more diversity in the school. Giving people the chance to express their culture during shows without being restricted
Ocean has a lot of school spirit and great teachers. When I got to college, I realized how superior our English department was and how well they prepared me for the rigor of college essays. The facilities are consistently being improved- especially the athletic areas. That being said, the school also offers a lot of AP classes and clubs so it is not singularly focused on athletics.
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!
The school is great, filled with amazing teachers and staff. The people are nice too, they are very approachable. I do feel that there is a big problem with drugs. I feel that there should be bag checks every morning, and they should invest in metal detectors if ever there were to be a school shooting, it could prevent that from happening.
There are an abundance of classes and different levels of classes which facilitates the path to figuring out what
