Coming from the East Coast I'm not impressed with this school/district given the HYPE about Albany schools. This is my opinion and experience so far: My child has spent 4th and now 5th grade at Ocean View. Emphasis on math over reading. That's fine I guess because my child is a big reader.

I have third grade twins who have been in separate classes since they started at Ocean View in first grade.

OV is a great diversified school with teachers who care! Commuting became easier for pedestrians and bikers as there are new roads recently built.

We have been very impressed with the teachers at OV and their dedication and attentiveness to their students. The student population literally comes from all over the world. Children learn about and experience other cultures on a daily basis and this, in of itself, is a valuable learning opportunity!

We transferred in last year and it has been nothing short of miraculous. My child needed services that our former school would not provide. Ocean View staff and teachers have really made an effort to get to know my child and get him the services he sorely needed, including rearranging their schedules ...  Read more

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
