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.
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.
