Overall Rating

I LIKE THE SCHOOL'S OVERALL ENVIRONMENT TEACHERS AND STAFF ARE VERY HELPFUL. JUST A LOT OF COURSES HAD BEEN CANCELLED. WHICH MAKES THE SCHOOL AMBIENCE AT TIMES VERY OVERWHELMING. I LIKE THE FACT THAT OCC TRIES TO GIVE THEIR CURRENT STUDENTS A REAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE BY PROVIDING EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
