Ossining High School Reviews
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.
Ossining High School is a great school to start your high school career. Ossining High School has a lot of diversity. Many backgrounds from all around the world can be found and my old high school. I am from an Ecuadorian background and that's the majority of students in my old school. Ecuadorian or with background make part of my old high school. But is not just as Ecuadorians that make the school as well the Americans, African Americans and a huge group of Hispanics.
My favorite thing about OHS is the amount of diversity. Our town/village is one of the most diverse in all of Westchester County, meaning that I have been able to be exposed to people with different languages, socioeconomic statuses, cultures, and religious practices than me. The academics are excellent, many SUNY and AP level courses are offered. The sports are intense to watch and fun to be a participant.
