I love being with Ocean Grove Charter School! For over nine years, I have been able to do what I love and learn about the world around me. They provided many programs that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to do. Being able to work from home and choose the amount of work that I thought was suitable for me was amazing. I never would have thought that I would be able to do horse back riding, have a computer, take culinary, learn programming, and so much more if I had been by myself.

What I enjoyed about Ocean Grove Charter School was that it allowed me to work at my own pace throughout high school. I was able to take classes that I actually enjoyed and were also applicable to the A-G requirements for college. I felt like this school and their teachers really care about the success of their students, and strive to ensure that their students achieve a high level of education without being too over stressed.
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.
