Ocean Township is a very interesting school. Most of the teachers are amazing, the security guards are super nice and friendly, and the guidence department is very welcoming. However, like all schools, we have faults. For us it is that only two bathrooms are open at a time. The school is so worried about kids smoking on the premises that they forget about something much more important: hygiene. By only allowing students to use two out of the dozen bathrooms in the school, students are forces to use unsanitary facilities.

At Ocean Township High School there are many opportunities that they offer in order to see their students succeed, not only in high school, but in life. Firstly, the SSOBF, or Spartan School of Business and Finance, offers a great chance for students to earn college credits in high school. Also, they have opened many other sub-schools such as technology and visual and performing arts that can attract students from every niche.
This high school, I think, is a good school because it makes the students to be involve with activities and clubs. The teachers and the facilities are always there to support and help their students, either relate to school or not. The teachers there try to find a way to help their students succeed. I also believe that they should put more college readiness or college related work in class.
