Wednesday was all about SAT Testing. Our junior students entered the gates of Oxnard High School anxious to get started with the arduous SAT test! The entire C Building was used as the testing center to provide the ultimate environment. The majority of students tested with their respective first period teachers and many were provided snacks and water to get them through the day.
OHS held an Elective Fair Friday to highlight/inform/recruit students to our respective academies. Our elective teachers escorted their individual students to the quad area periods 1 – 4 where they were greeted with colorful displays, pamphlets, and presentations.
