    "My oldest daughter is a 2011 graduate of Oceana High School. The school is under the wonderful leadership of Ms. Caro Pemberton. The school is much smaller than the other high schools available to Daly City residents and that is a definite plus. The curriculum prepared my daughter well for moving onto college. The study habits she developed during her time at Oceana served her well in her college studies. Small community feel, caring teachers, block schedules, and supportive administrators all contribute to an outstanding high school experience. We are so pleased with Oceana that we plan to send our younger daughter there as well."

    "Ocean High School, when it comes to the curriculum i am amazed. It defiantly improves the skills of the students and fits the description of a college prep high school. But more importantly the staff and teachers are amazing, some more than others. For instance the vice principles of the school are horrible but the principle herself is amazing. The principal is fit for her position and i could not describe how amazing she is. Although the two vice principals are absolutely horrible especially the female one. She is very discriminating and quick to judge , i would say she is very unfit to be in her position on work and should be removed. The male vice principal is a little better but couldn't care less of the students. He has favorites and is also quick to judge and has no faith in the kids what so ever. Other than the two vice principals, the school proves to help improve the skills of the students to benefit them in their lives ahead. But all this means nothing unless the two vice principals are removed from the school. They do not fit the rest of the staff for they are the only two who honestly do not have faith in the children and are very quick to judge."

    "My daughter just graduated from Oceana and she loved it. The small student body allows for great communication between teachers and students. Teachers, counselors, and staff are very supportive and committed to helping the students succeed. Her graduating class wasn't clicky like a lot of high schools can be. This was an overall excellent experience."

    "The school is in San Francisco Bay Area,,,,but is small enough that the teachers can and do have the time for healthy one on one interactions with the students. The school is great, encourages students to particapate in their education......and it has a breath taking view !!!"

    "The kids are known by names,not just a number and the teachers really care about each student. The kids feel safe. They try to instill school pride with fun activities."
