As a parent I wanted my kids to be challenged academically, to have lots of enrichment opportunities, and to be prepared for life in the global community. OHS has delivered. Students who are motivated to do science research can work with world-class scientists in the NY area in a program recognized by Intel as #1 in the U.S. they can participate in excellent music, art, theater, Junior state, and sports programs. They can arrive in college with a nice portfolio of advanced placement courses. And they get to know all kinds of people. It's a well-rounded life. Very thankful for this school.

The sky's the limit in terms of challenge. Students can get involved in state and national award-winning groups in science research, music, sports and more. Because there are students of many economic backgrounds, the overall atmosphere is not one of the narcissistic entitlement you see in certain Westchester schools.

OHS is a happy place where students of very diverse backgrounds connect and thrive. There is a huge focus on how each student can contribute to building the sense of community. It's really a very special place.

OHS is a real community. Students are not appreciated because they drive a BMW but because they contribute to campus life and recognize the value of all classmates.

Ossining High School's math and science program are rated top in the country! The recognition that the high school has received in math, science, the arts, athletics and the placement of our graduating seniors into top universities, merit more than a 5 rating! Recently Westchester magazine rated Ossining number two in places to live in Westchester county. They listed the schools at the top of the reasons to live in Ossining! Great schools!!!

I have 3 children..boys...7th grade, 5th and kindergarten. Love the schools. My 12 year old in 7th grade loves AMD. I am very pleased. My two older boys are at the top of their class. All the teachers that we've experienced so far have been fantastic.

Ossining High School, so far, has been a great school .Others are right that there are many AP courses and extracurriculars. However, AMD was an awful experience as an 8th grader. As for the teachers they are very wide range of adequacy(some were great;others were horrible)

A great school for the academically motivated. There are a plethora of courses to challenge those students who are looking to go above and beyond the basic courses. The students can either take the advantages this school offers or stay with the basic courses.

I have one child in the Ossining Middle School AMD(Anne M Dormer Middle School) and another in the Ossining High School ..OHS....and I am VERY MUCH satisfied with the involvement ALL the teachers give at both schools....especially AMD where my son has an attention disorder..no hyperactivity just has major problems staying focus so he has to be in a special program where he gets testing in a testing room with less distractions, addl text books for home, homework online so I can keep up and help him stay on task...as he forgets what he wrote and where he put it...so that helps ME to stay on task and the teachers and I email each other every so often if he's falling behind in any assignments, talking in class, missing homework etc...as well as the high school teachers follows up with you as well. GREATTT SCHOOLS!!!!

Academics at OHS are fabouls! I have never seen any other high school improve so much over the years. My daughter has been in the school for 2 years now and she has never been so happy with this school, because the provid many of her favorite things, such as a fantasic volleyball and basketball team, art, and many others. I think that for this school to become 1 of the best which in my eyes it is but in other parents it is not, is they should have an all staff meeting let the staff think on what needs to be improved and over the summer improve it so when the middle schoolars come in the are amazed by the outstanding school it will be! -thank you from a very involed parent (no name)
