Ocean Alternative Education Center Reviews

1 review
I attended Ocean Alternative for 7 years, from second grade all the way through eighth. During that time I was able to find something no traditional school could ever impart, I found a true love of the adventure that is learning. Did I leave with an above average knowledge of contemporary mathematics? No. Did I have MLA format ingrained in my being? Not at all. What I had was the ability to catch up on those things that go so far beyond them because I valued my time and my education like no one else. If you have a kid that finds school arduous and boring, try giving them a little freedom with Ocean Alt.
