We believe that each child is unique. We have created a school environment that is safe, secure, and that addresses the needs of all students. In addition to our strong academic programs that challenge students and provide them with a solid foundation for learning, we stress the development of social skills that encourage confidence, self-esteem and healthy interactions with others.


We have high standards for our students. We want them to have the skills to be successful in society, and also the humanity to contribute to an improved world. Please join in a partnership with us as we work toward these important goals.  We strive for an excellent relationship among children, parents and teachers working together to make each year a success.

Michaela Wright: Member of Oceanside High School’s Stem Academy, and Future Teacher.


Oceanside High School is proud to announce the creation of our STEM Academy, which leads to a STEM diploma endorsement.  The STEM Academy is designed to increase student achievement at Oceanside and help students get the most our of their high school career.  Requirements for the endorsement, which exceed graduate requirements, include completion of five honors-level science courses, four honors-level mathematics courses and at least one AP level course in math or science.  Through the STEM Academy, students will explore different career paths, have one-on-one mentoring and experience internships of their choosing.  Michaela Wright is one of 28 students who were accepted into the STEM Academy this fall.  Michaela's interest is in Elementary Education and she has spent the last 3 weeks job-shadowing Mrs. Ford's class as she prepares for her internship during the second semester. Michaela was a wonderful addition to the classroom. She instantly made connections with the children, asking them open-ended, thought provoking questions. She will be a fabulous teacher one day! 

Notice Regarding School Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Policies

Pest Control

Because pesticides pose risks, the school uses an alternative approach to merely applying pesticides. Control of insects, rodents, and weeds at our school focuses on making the school buildings and grounds an unfavorable place for pests to live and breed. Through maintenance and cleaning, we will reduce or eliminate available food and water sources and hiding places for the pests. We will also routinely monitor the school area to detect pest problems and prevent the pests from becoming established. Some techniques we will use include pest monitoring, sanitation, pest exclusion, proper food storage, pest removal, good turf and plant care, and--as a last resort--pesticides. This holistic approach is often called Integrated Pest Management (IPM).


Pesticide Use

Sometimes pesticide use may be necessary to control a pest problem. When that happens, the school will use the lowest risk approach available. If higher risk pesticides must be used, notices will be posted at application sites and advance notice will be sent home with students.


Your Right to Know

Parents, legal guardians, and school staff will be notified about certain pesticide applications made at the school. Notification will be given at least five days before planned pesticide applications during the regular school year. In addition, for pesticides applied anytime during the year, notices will also be posted in the school and on school grounds two working days before until 48 hours after the application. Notification need not be given for pesticide applications recognized by law to pose little or no risk of exposure to children or staff.

The school also keeps records of pest monitoring, pesticide applications and information about the pesticides used. You may review these records, a copy of the School's Integrated Pest Management Policy and the Pesticides in Schools regulation (CMR 01-026 Chapter 27) by contacting our IPM coordinator, Scott Hall, at 593-9066, 596-6620, or

If you have any questions, please contact Scott Hall. For further information about pests, pesticides and your right to know, call the Board of Pesticides Control at 287-2731.
