I am the parent that wrote about having three children at the school last year! First of all I have met with the teacher, assistant principal, counselor, RSP teacher. Through out last year I had many many meeting. The 8th grade teacher IS very unorganized, I have talked to many parents that have the same problem with one of the teachers. Children would turn in work get it signed and turned around and get no credit. When parents speak to the child, and can prove they have done it, then take it back to teacher. Teacher tells student in order to get full credit you have to redo. REDO something teacher has signed. Not right at all. I understand that the 8th graders are being prepared for high school, but it is way overwhelming. 8th grade final for PE - write an bio as if you are 70 yrs. I think this is something more for English not PE. What happen to PE being about PE? Looking forward to see what the school has to bring this year.

I have had children in OVHS almost since the school opened. My children have received a quality education at OVHS. They were well prepared for high school and college. The recent homework debate here is something that needs to separated from the review of the school itself. I don't feel that my children have had excess homework while at OVHS. However, I do understand parent's concerns about the need for a break from school work. In fact, Harvard recommends such a break for high school students and I have seen the stress in my oldest from never having a true break in HS. (she was one of the ope students in her graduating class). I have another child in a HS with a traditional calendar and like having the summer break. If homework is an issue it is always a good idea to talk to the teacher and keeo in mind that high school will probably be similar.

To the Parent complaining about the amount of school work.. Both my kids attend this school in fact I my son attended first grade when they opened. From the beginning the Staff & Parents wanted the curriculum taught to help our kids prepare for high school & so they could take the Honors or AP courses (for College Credit) Both my kids are in high schoool (they have 6 different teachers) & are enrolled in Honors/AP classes so they have alot more homework now. I feel that they are doing well in their classes because they had to learn how to manage their time & began to develop study skills in the 7th & 8th grade. I know it's tough to see your child not be able to enjoy their vacation or have to sit in another room because they have homework. I remember having to cut trips short or cancell plans because my son or daughter had to finish a report or project. The Teachers understand this but they also know what your child will be facing next year so they are trying to teach both the kids & Parents about time management for studying & develop better study skills. I'm almost positive the Teacher does not want your child to fail which is why all 3 of you should meet to resolve this matter

I currently have three children in this school. I have a 8th grader, 6th grader, and a 5th grader... We have so many problems with the 8th grader teacher. The teachers act like this is college or something. The children are not allowed a break. When the children have day or week/s off they assign so much work. My 8th grader is behind in work, but its a never ending battle and my child is unable to catch up due to the amount of homework. I really dislike a few teachers. We have had problems with work being turned in and signed by teacher and still get no credit. I have talked with other parents and have found out that this is not only happening with my child but other children. This is WRONG! I hope the teachers are able to enjoy their spring break, because my child is not able to... My child has not been able to enjoy any breaks. They only get 5 weeks off for summer, That is the only time my children get to be children and enjoy themselves.

I wouldn't recommend this public school to anyone. As being a student since kindergarten, the students that embody the school aren't good role models to the younger grade levels. Even if they modernized the buildings and classrooms, the school overall isn't so great. We're behind in science and social studies and ever since I moved I don't think this school helped me at all. And each year they aren't improving; no, each year it's getting worst. The students become more liberated, the staff, teachers, and council get lazier, and there is no sign of improvement in this school. But OVHS has potential and luck, but they aren't using their resources wisely. Just to let you know for all the parents out there that are thinking their kid would be happier and would process the right education for the average American learning standard, think again. You may notice a dramatic change in your child's behavior and a drop in their grades if they hang out with the wrong people. As I have said, I was a former student of this school and kids here are just way too liberated. If you don't want your child bullied, then don't enter this school.

This school cares more about the money than the students. They cram as many children in one room as humanly possible and then assign only one teacher for all the kids. They recently built a brand new school and originally had one teacher for every 15 or so kids but now they have one teacher for 32 kindergartners. What's worse is they made the children not only change up classrooms but teachers and the way they learn as well. If you want your kids to actually get an education then do them and yourself a favor and do NOT send them to this school.

Awesome school. Wonderful teachers and staff. My child recently completed 8th grade from Ocean View Hills; started from Kindergarten. Kudos to all the teachers and staff throughout those years for doing a great job. The school is focused on the success of the students, providing guidance and challenges. Aside from the outstanding academic teaching, there are sports, music, news blog, and other activities that help kids develop leadership, teamwork, and social skills (while having fun). Overall, this school is awesome.

I've been a student at this school since kindergarten.I am now in sixth grade. This school has definitely progressed throughout the years and made me proud to see it grow. The staff work hard and they want the best for everyone. There are plenty of sports and after school activities. The teachers always plans stuff out as grade teams and figure out a way for the students to get what they are learning in a very fun way. You be amazed at how much we learn and how much we actually remember! The principal knows me and she is very nice. All the students here are very creative and bring new ideas to this school. For example, a group of fifth graders last year created a clean-up committee to help out the school. Overall, this school is really amazing. All the kids are very welcoming to new students and barely no one bullies at our school anymore. So you should give this school a shot. It is really AWESOME!!!

It's been a great experience at this school-- teachers and principal have great academic program. They have high expectations of students and parents and provide them with support and structure. I had bad experience in other school with daughter were they led me to believe she was doing fine in all areas. But here I discovered that she wasn't and with teacher advise and support my child is now at level. I thank them for showing care about the kids!!!

Good school. Teachers are really involved, technology used in classrooms are up to date. Teachers utilize technology to communicate with parents (i.e emails, TeacherEase- web application). Teacher do not allow any other languages spoken in their class which is awesome since it does not slow down the rest of the class. I think they need to ensure Ocean View Hills residents have enrollment priority over others. They need to invest more time and resources into verifying qualified students for enrollment. Overall good school. Would be nice if they had more programs for the 7th and 8th graders (i.e Sports, Band, etc). Overall good school.

My sons teachers email me on a daily basis on not only his homework assignments but latest grades on all tests. If your child doesn't like homework, this is definately NOT the school to send them to. They are pushed on a daily basis to succeed.

I have 2 kids in ovhs and so far i like both of my children's teacher i think they are both experienced and knowledgeable in their profession. The only thing that i was not really happy about is how the staff treat us whenever we have a question. They don't seem to care care about your question and need.

Contrary to what other parents have said, the admin staff is not rude at all. I am a parent and volunteer all the time. I see how admin treats the students and parents who come in the office, they are all very nice lady's. Although the PTSA was formed a little bit late this year, they have began to have activities for the students already. The staff is great, they really make sure the students get everything they deserve. My son is in kindergarden and is already reading books all on his own, that could not have been possible without the teachers giving him all the support he needs. OVH is a great school and if more parents got involved it could be even better.

my kids (2) have attended ovhs for 3 yrs I am happy with the school but I do agree that the admin staff are rude we do need more information on the school events and sometimes that is the reason not many students attend the events there is no parent participation so this year our kids will not have many events due to no parents volunteered for the ptsa the performing arts is great the after school programs are awesome and entertaining for the kids and the website definitely needs updating

OVHS, has come a long ways, the school is getting better and better, parents need to get more involved in the PTSA, the PTSA does so many things for the students, Book Fair, Fundraising for the kids to go to 6th grade camp, certificates, pencils, books, are given to the students at the award assemblies, fieldtrips, fun assemblies. Elections were held for 2007-08 and nobody signed up. Teachers are great! The school does need a better web site for information.

My children have attended this school for several years, and I'm overyjoyed that they will be able to stay there through 8th grade. The teachers have maintained a good relationship with the parents and are active members of the PTSA. We [parents] can fully count on their support.

We were so excited to get started at this beautiful new school. But were very disappointed and are now quite frustrated with the indifferent and often rude attitude we have received each visit to the school by the Admin front desk. We requested a tour of campus for our daughter who was new to the school and were told absolutely not possible! Even tried the asking the PTA! I tried to go to the OVH school website (not district) to get an update on calendar and events - all information is from 2002-2003! I keep reading how this is the new 'high tech school' Surely they can keep up a website! Definite language barrier with kids and parents.

We enrolled our three children at Ocean View Hills after a move from a neighboring city where our children had attended a performing arts school. At their previous school, all our children excelled in their classes. After the transfer to Ocean View Hills, they were at the top of their classes at no time. According to my children, the language barrier they believe is the main obstacle at the school. Being highly populated by Hispanic students with Spanish speaking parents whose main form of communication to their children is their native language. We believe a great ESL program and may be a collaboration with a program such as READ/San Diego (for parents) will highly benefit Ocean View Hills. It is a great school with a lot of potential.

Once the school was moved to it's final site, it has been good. They will be doing performing arts at this school and the teachers I had contact with were looking for ways to make positvie changes. My daughters teacher has helped her with math and she is doing great. But the school is too close to the border. I did wish more parents would participate in the planning of activites. But language barrier. I still give the teachers a E for effort and my support on continuing to improve the school.

The new school is great! The teacher's are wonderful! The only improvement I can see, for Ocean View Hills, is the communication of the administration, the teachers, and the parents. A lot of the functions, school activities, and even the P.T.A. meetings were told about at the last minute or not highly hyped up enough so as parents it felt like there was not enough time to plan nor participate in. As being in their new school maybe the new school year will be different.

This is a school that has struggled to get started for 4 years. It has been a group of trailers filled with eager students. The majority of the staff are teachers with less than than 5 years teaching experience. The teachers work hard to provide the students an oppourtunity to learn. The actual school building is being built now. There is speculation about when it will actually open for student attendance. I think the new school will boost staff and student moral. Parents need to stay involed with what happens at the school. Students need to improve attendance. A great example is this web site. I know parent have views about this school and ideas of what to do to improve it. They need to speak up. We have to work together to get what we want for our children.
