Ossining High School Reviews
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.
I received a very well rounded education at Ossining High School, that not only prepared me for college, but for life. I am now attending a Top 50 University. When discussing my high school experience with my peers, I've realized that none of them have taken classes on personal finance, accounting, race and ethnic relations or gender studies. These classes aren't even offered at many schools. The broad range of classes at OHS is unique and not found in even our neighboring school districts. The teachers are so passionate and truly care about their students and want to help them reach their full potential and graduate as better individuals on the path to success. I'm forever thankful that I attended Ossining High School.
One of the greatest boons of Ossining High School was its ability to expose students to programs that weren't available at other schools. The gender and race classes were invaluable to me, personally, and they provided me with language to connect with multitudes of people on very delicate topics. The science research program also catapulted many students into positions where they had awards and national recognition which aided them when applying to top-tier schools. However, after moving on from Ossining High School, I feel compelled to criticize the school's insistence on having a very diverse and accepting population. Although there is a large percentage of POC attending the school, they are usually socially (not institutionally) segregated by the student body.
