Keep in mind the Great Schools rating of 1 out of 10 does not reflect what actually goes on at this school. The majority of the students who attend here come from broken homes, abusive homes, and some have no home at all. Many come in unable to read or even do basic math. I attended Oceana for 2 years and graduated from there. I came in broken and homeless. The principal, at the time, saw value in me and connected me with a fantastic foster family (I was 17 at the time, technically and adult, he did not have to step in and help). If it were not for him and this school I'm not sure where I'd be now. The teachers and staff here take on a heavy task by investing their time and love into these students and they truly care about them. They encourage them and the teaching goes beyond academics, they teach them how to be better people. If not for this school most of those children would not graduate at all.

You would never think an alternative school could provide a quality education, but this school delivers. The staff is incredibly involved and the students are very accepting. I would be proud to have any of my kids attend OHS.

My daughter attended Oceana Highschool and it was possibly the greatest thing in her life. The staff and environment the student is surrounded with allows them to learn and to grow. I had never seen her work so hard or care so much. The school provided her with all the tools and support to become and remain sucessful. I would recomend this God sent school to anyone that needs a positive change.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
