Our goal is to inform students that Oceanside High offers services to help them when they feel they need it. We strongly encourage students to seek out these awesome programs to help themselves through their struggles, whatever they may be.

Komen Walk for the Cure is held every year in Balboa Park.  This year, students of 2013 breast cancer walk.jpgthe Oceanside Health Academy joined over 13,000 runners and walkers to support breast cancer research.  The wave of pink gives you a feeling as if you are doing something very important; and because of our medical theme, we know we are!

The 3.1 mile winds through the beautiful grounds of Balboa Park allowing you to enjoy the essence of nature while raising money for a good cause.  The academy raised over $600 for the this event.

Martin Luther King, JR. Bridge is New Crossing for Oceanside

MLK_Bridge.jpgOceanside High students traveling over the Mission Avenue Bridge just east of the school will now recognize the structure as the new Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge.  The City of Oceanside officially re-named the structure in honor of the former civil rights leader during a special ceremony Thursday on the OHS campus.

Two new street signs symbolizing the late Dr. King were unveiled as former Pirate and OHS Class of ’68 graduate Willie Buchanon delivered the keynote address and rang a symbolic Freedom Bell.  Student dance teams provided entertainment, while Mayor Jim Wood also thanked the school and the community for supporting such an important project.
