We love the school although the volunteer hours are quite tremendous. I like the idea of lots of field trips. Indeed, my kids learned a lot from those trips especially overnight trips. However, I agreed with one of the parents' comment that the school should focus more on academics.
Great school! Everyone working together to ensure that the kids get the best education and guidance. Field trips provide a wonderful out of class experience for the kids too!
Ocean Shore I feel this school is not emphasizing enough on academic. For example, there are too may field trips during school year, and there is not enough decent computers for students. As a result, Math is lagging compare to other schools nearby. This is the time that we need to produce more well prepared math and science students.
I love Ocean Shore!!! Parents and teachers work very hard together to make sure our children get the best education. My son look forward going to school because of all field trips and activities. If it wasn't because of the hours the parents put in none of that would be possible! This school is a great school...
Reading all these glowing reviews, I get excited about the ideal of what OSS promises all over again. I reviewed this school in 2008 and my opinion is still that OSS still requires a lot of work with regard to character building. The adults at the school from parents to school personnel need a constant reminder that children learn by what we do, not what we say. For example, respect can be taught in very simple, concrete ways. When a child goes hungry, because several adults refused to listen and dismissed that child, it is neither nurturing nor respectful. Tolerance and compassion are hallmarks of COMMUNITY. Sadly, we have not experienced the community, collaboration and sharing that is so often mentioned here. We do so wish that other families would reach out to each other with sincerity. Once again, I hope OSS adults will take it as a challenge to act on rather than a personal attack.
An excellent example of and an ideal school environment - with teachers, parents, students and administrators !
A community of dedicated teachers, students, parents and administrators.
The commitment and dedication of the teachers to help their students be the best they can be in all areas.
Ocean Shore is a wonderful school. Our children are enriched with all types of learning tools rangeing from typical class lessons to hand-on learning so that everyone can truely succeed.
Wow, what a community! Families helping out in the classroom, kids getting core curricullum supplemented by the talents of all those parent volunteers.
Ocean School offers as versatile a curricum as funds allow; children are learning in all areas and learning well. P.S. I am a grandparent and need a category under 'I am!'
The teachers are passionate about giving their children the best education possible
So many families at Ocean Shore School are willing and happy to donate hundreds of hours in order to give our children the most educational and enjoyable experiences possible.
I taught at this school. The parent support is awesome and the teachers are very skilled.
The experiential education it provides the school gives the children a stimulating environment for learning. It shows them how to apply what they learn in traditional classroon instruction and prepares them to be active community participants.
This school is based on community and collaboration. It's about sharing... ! It's academics are good, but it's strength is community.
