Sophomore: I love being with Ocean Grove Charter School! For over nine years, I have been able to do what I love and learn about the world around me. They provided many programs that I otherwise wouldn't have been able to do. Being able to work from home and choose the amount of work that I thought was suitable for me was amazing. I never would have thought that I would be able to do horse back riding, have a computer, take culinary, learn programming, and so much more if I had been by myself.

Senior: AFE is perfect for students who don’t “fit in” in a comprehensive high school. you get the chance to participate in clubs and sports on a smaller scale, so if sports are your thing a bigger school might be better. you can take classes online, on your own, with a parent teaching you or at AFE or the community college cabrillo. I love it because I didn’t have a great time at a big school and AFE made me feel welcomed and gives me the opportunity and time to do the things i like during the day. It’s a public high school, but also a homeschool.

Alum: I attended Ocean Alternative for 7 years, from second grade all the way through eighth. During that time I was able to find something no traditional school could ever impart, I found a true love of the adventure that is learning. Did I leave with an above average knowledge of contemporary mathematics? No. Did I have MLA format ingrained in my being? Not at all. What I had was the ability to catch up on those things that go so far beyond them because I valued my time and my education like no one else. If you have a kid that finds school arduous and boring, try giving them a little freedom with Ocean Alt.
