Ocean High School Senior Exhibitions are a celebration and culmination of achievement for graduating seniors at Oceana High School. The exhibitions demonstrate each student’s ability to engage in serious thought and to use critical skills in researching and communicating knowledge on a subject of their choice. Students select a topic for investigation and study it in depth over the course of the school year. They present the results of their research in a written paper and during an oral presentation at the end of the year. Their oral presentations are before an audience of students, family and friends, with a faculty member and a community volunteer serving as evaluators.
Community volunteers are needed to act as secondary evaluators for the students' oral presentations. Community participation increases the challenge for students by requiring them to be prepared to speak before a public audience. It also provides an opportunity for members of the community to observe the accomplishments of students graduating from Oceana High School
New community evaluators must attend a training session in the afternoon or evening of Wednesday, March 6th. At the training session, they select the specific presentation(s) they would like to evaluate. On Exhibition Day, March 15th, community evaluators attend the student’s presentation and then confer with a faculty member to evaluate the presentation.
