My experience with Oxnard High School was strongly influenced by being involved with a sport all four years. I was able to make friends and enjoyed all the traveling we did for games/tournaments. Academic speaking, I had great teachers that taught the subjects very well in my opinion. Especially the teachers who taught AP courses they made sure the classes were challenging to prepare students for college. My favorite thing about Oxnard high school was the rally's we would have in our big gym before school dances. ASB worked very hard in decor and preparation of entertainment for the hour. I loved watching the different dance teams perform and see everyone get together!

Oxnard High School is like almost any highschool. The administration us so lack luster that the small decisions they make to 'improve' the school are sadly insignificant and almost laughable. OHS teachers vary, some are powerpoint teachers who teach you nothing and a few of them have reinvigorated my love of learning. A love that was almost destroyed by the horrid leviathan called the education system. I can't completely fault Oxnard Highschool, they're not the reason the education system is like this. Our district's response to covid19 demonstrated it's weakness and lack of direction and I hope that despite the budget cuts that OHS and Oxnard School District will realize their errors. The Oxnard community is worthy and intelligent no matter what people may believe. I have been locked in commradery with some of the most kind and intelligent human beings Oxnard has to offer. I know they will continue on to do great things.
Oxnard High School is undoubtedly survived by a few hard working staff. These few staff member do their absolute best to make the school a better place and make everyone feel involved and welcomed. However, they cannot fully compensate for the mass of the staff, who seemingly do not care about their jobs. The staff is horrible at collaborating and communicating with each other, as well as making decisions. Many teachers are incapable of connecting with their students through teaching and seem to have given up rather than looking for ways to improve.
The campus is rather interesting. On one half, the artwork and murals everywhere are beautiful and make the campus seem far more welcome. On the other half, the staff decided the best solution for vaping in the bathrooms was to lock the majority of the bathrooms. Averaging about 1 set of open male/female bathrooms per 1,000 students, the bathrooms are also often missing soap/paper towels and have broken door locks.
