Ocean Grove Charter School Reviews

I had great experiences with working with the teachers and Education Specialists at Ocean Grove. Everyone I'd worked alongside during my time there was positive and wanted to get to know me as a student and a person, which have molded into some great friendships.
Ocean Grove's class selection for students can be a bit stinted. I wanted to learn a language not offered on Ocean Grove's catalog, but my Education Specialist was so invested on seeing me succeed that they worked it out so I could learn the language I wanted.
The Education Specialists also worked well with my family to answer any questions we had.
Ocean Grove was a good experience for the people, and I hope that their opportunities can be further diversified in the future.

Ocean Grove Charter is a public parent-choice homeschool charter school. While one can choose their classes and subjects, some standardized testing or essays are required (but, note: the CAASSP is optional). The student/parents meet with their Education Specialist who looks through their work samples and makes sure they are meeting education standards. Then, each student is given funds (the ones that would go towards sports or the buildings or whatever in a traditional school) and gives it to the students to use towards books, curriculum, and/or extracurricular activities. Additioanlly, if one take a full course load in High School with the correct classes, one can graduate early fairly easily. Overall, if one understands the school, it's a good system.
Please note: This school is K-12 and is available in multiple counties, check the website to see if your county is included.
Being homeschooled presents it's own unique challenges for both students and parents. The support from ocean grove, the people I've worked with, and what they provided meant that myself and my siblings were able to work at our own pace while feeling like we were learning all the time. Being apart of ocean grove made me ready to dive into college knowing that I was ready to be a hardworking and eager student, despite the new environments that I would face.
