What I liked about Ocean Springs High School was that I had the availability to be whoever/whatever I wanted. They provided me with many opportunities to participate in the school. The only thing that I would change would be the attitudes of some of my peers, which doesn’t really have anything to do with the high school itself. Go greyhounds!

Ocean Springs has a nice environment with amazing teachers and classes. The teachers are lenient with deadlines and are understanding. They offer tutoring and extra help to any student who might be struggling with the coursework. There is also a diverse range of classes ranging from regular to honors to ap to ib to dual credit classes. There is also about 3o clubs to enter to fulfill everybody's needs!
My experience at Ocean Springs Highs School has been astonishing. The teachers are astounding at teaching the subject you are in. The teachers aspire to challenge the student's knowledge to open their minds to information they haven't applied. When you are struggling in the class the teacher is always by your side making sure you will pass. That is what I love about the teachers there. Another big thing is the ACT scores. Ocean Springs challenges students to broaden their scores so they can get a good scholarship to a college. Every day kids including me make new friends creating great memories there with the pep er rallies and game days. A things I would change or would like to change would be the food they serve. The food there is never great. It is not like a home-style meal. It would be great if we had options like fast food. For example, Pizza Hut and Chick fil a. Everything else is wonderful. That is what Ocean Springs highschool is with me.
