This was a great school with an unusual campus that is more like a community college than a typical high school. The staff was decent and teachers seemed genuinely interested in their students.
Since our principal 3 years ago changed the original 6 periods to a blog schedule with 4 periods and 4 terms for the year, the school is going downhill. Except our mock trial and Acadeca are great achievement programs. The great teachers who were against the new blog system, quitted and went to other schools. They wanted to help the students to succeed. Now there are 8 courses a year instead of 6, that means there is less time for each course then with 6 periods. How to squeeze all the info in? Also the courses students have in the first part of the year are forgotten by most of them when they have to do the state exams and AP's. After 3 years of this program, the school is going back to a kind of old schedule. Not totally, because of budget crisis trouble. I was never for it.
Pretty awesome school. Great sports teams. Watch out for the sea-gulls at lunch time. You are bound to get hit once.

OHS is an amazing school. My child was always afraid to go to school, she always had the image of bullies, tons of homework, and no fun. After being there for just a month she is now always wanting to go to school, and gets angry at me whenever I drive her to school late. Thank you OHS! Keep on being the best you can be!
The principal here is great! The counselors are always there to help, and the athletic coaches that I've dealt with, are motivating. My daughter's grades have risen to a 3.89-4.0-even with the pressure of starting a new school,& playing sports. Overall, I'm very happy with my daughter's experience at Oxnard High.
My oldest daughter graduated from OHS last year. Her high school experience was the best at OHS. She was actively involved in ASB, Drama, Dance and a variety of other activities. We moved to Oxnard at the beginning of her 10th grade year and her grades were not good and her attitude toward school was even worse. Thanks to the staff and her wonderful guidence counselor, Mrs. Bollister, things quickly turned around. My youngest duaghter is now attending OHS and having a wonderful experience there. She is taking CP classes and loves the involvement of each of her teachers. The principal, Mr. Edwards has a very positive effect on the students as well. Go Yellow Jackets!
