The school is located in a very good area. There are tons of sports, clubs, and activities to participate in. Ocean Township High School has a very welcoming feeling and gives students equal opportunities to advance their educational career. They could prepare students better for SAT prep and college essays. Financial literacy should also be taught senior year not freshmen year of high school.

Overall a nice school. Most teachers are passionate about their job and really care about theirs students. However, the food that they serve in the cafeteria is horrible. My friend found mold in the chicken TWICE! It’s very unhealthy and the salads are always freezing cold.
Awesome school spirit. Most teachers cared about you personally. Most kids feel entitled. Love my core group of friends!
