Ossining High School Reviews

As of June 2019, I have graduated from Ossining High School. My experience there from over the last few years has been one of both many ups in the achievements and friends I have made at the school as well as a few lows. An example of the best that the school has to offer is it's diverse and well around amazing staff, teachers and principles. All of whom I know to be very kind and approachable. Additionally the teachers themselves are the best, each carrying their own unique style of teaching on top of the basic common core curriculum, of which is a major downside. The common core curriculum in short, harms and limits the teach-ability of the lesson presented making sometimes a fun subject a banal lecture.

Ossining gets a bad rap, but I've lived here my entire life and it has honestly been a blessing. The schooling, specifically the science programs have given me opportunities I could not get elsewhere. Being a part of the internationally recognized Ossining Science Research Program has opened so many doors and experiences that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Being able to do high-quality research at prestigious colleges/research institutions is a surreal experience. All teachers in Ossining love what they do and really care for their students. It's an amazing community and I have never wished to go to any other school.
I had a great experience at Ossining High School! The staff for the most part is very helpful and the teachers are very good at what they do. They also offer a lot of college courses which can be really beneficial. I played several sports during my time there and had nothing but positive experiences with all my coaches and fellow athletes. Unfortunately I've heard administration has gone down hill since I've left since they've gotten a new principal. Hopefully they can pull it together and get OHS back to it's original state.
