Ocean City High School

501 Atlantic Ave
Ocean City, NJ 08226



The original building was erected in 1923 and expanded upon in 1983.  The demolition began in 2004 and ended in 2005.  The school crest, which appears on many school related materials, has a special meaning to Ocean City High School. The hawk, or "Raider" type bird, represents the symbolic name of the Ocean City Red Raiders. The books at the top part of the crest represent the educational endeavors of the Ocean City School District. The plows at the top represent the agricultural industry, which has always been important to the Southern New Jersey Area. The ship in the middle (with the OC on it) sails off the coast of Ocean City. During the 1800's, pirate ships often uses the bay area as a hiding place while waiting for the ships to appear and then they would raid them. The ship also represents the ship building industry, which at one time was very important to the economy of South Jersey. Our present yearbook is called the "Caravel" and the school paper is known as the "Billows" (for the white caps of the waves of the beautiful Atlantic Ocean). These white tops can be seen at the bottom of the boat on the crest. Ocean City High School is rich in tradition and all the students should be proud of the school and their South Jersey Heritage.
