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.

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.
