    "This is a great school. I have two daughters attending OBE, one for four years and one for two. Every teacher we have had has been very good, very committed and engaged in helping each child reach their potential. The administration has changed during our time here but so far we have not seen a negative impact from those changes. I think this is a top notch public school, I don't think you can get much better than this one without going to a very expensive private school in a more metropolitan area honestly. My fears of an SC education for my children have not come into reality in the least. We moved to Myrtle Beach 4 years ago, coming from a private school in a metropolitan setting so this was a big, scary change for us. We have been highly involved in school and have been very, very pleasantly surprised and pleased with this school."

    "Overall, I believe Ocean Bay to be one of the best in the area. My daughter has been attending this school since Kindergarten and I even have her transferred every year to OBE since we moved out of the district because I wouldn't want her to attend any other elementary school in the area. I have never had any problems and am very impressed with the friendliness of their staff. My daughter loves it and I wouldn't have it any other way."

    "Ocean Bay is a wonderful school. They are very involved in the community and place each child first. I am blessed to have my child in the care of such wonderful loving teachers"

    "Ocean bay is over crowded, the homework they send home is a joke ( a photo copied page out of a work book with only half the information you need to complete the assignment.) They wait until the last minute to request money for school projects and parties. The teachers do not keep in contact with the parents. this school has left a very bad taste in my mouth and we've been with them for almost 3 years."

    "This is my daughters first year at Ocean Bay. I have to say I was very excited to get her into such a great school. I love that this school is more challenging. The education is so much better then the upstate. The only thing I have not been to happy with is the communication. I have sent notes with question/concerns to her teacher w/o responses. I have to say it is very important to have great communication btwn the parent and teacher. I sometimes feel as if I am a bother to my daughters teacher. I guess I will have to wait and see what happens next yr!"
