Oceanside High School Weekly Update
84 Days Until 2023 Graduation!
The Pirate Way
I was driving in Arizona the other day and as I passed the welcome sign what I noticed was that Arizona became a state in 1912. Why does this matter? Oceanside High School was founded in 1906 six years before Arizona became a state! When we think of all of the history and tradition we have here at Oceanside High School it is important to put it in perspective. Knowing we are older than a state is a different way to grasp the many years Oceanside High School has been supporting our students and our community. And we are not done making it the best high school ever! We will continue to make changes to better support our students, staff and community.
Please remember that it is all of us together that make OHS what it is for all of our students. We welcome you to be an active participant in the activities and happenings on campus. If you have any suggestions please do not hesitate to reach out to any OHS staff member! We are a team working toward a common goal. Only when we all work together can we truly transform and increase the success of all of our OHS students!
Pirates you are a part of something big! You belong and will always belong in the Oceanside High School Pirate Community. What an amazing feeling to realize you belong to something bigger than the individual Pirate, but rather part of a 100 year plus Pirate Ship Community!
Regardless of where you may go and no matter what you end up accomplishing the one thing that you have to count on is that you will ALWAYS be a PIRATE!
Stay safe! Know you are loved and belong to the Pirate community - this is the Pirate Way!
