Important Graduation Information

Students, parents, alumni, and members of the community,


Oceanside High School administration has received notice from the City of Oceanside that they are suspending large-scale events at the Pier Amphitheatre beginning December 2018, due to construction of the beach resort. This will affect the historical location of our graduations. The city expects the construction to last approximately 36 months.


Among various reasons listed, such as the use of heavy machinery, cranes, noise, dust, and diminished parking in the area, the city of Oceanside cites safety as the primary concern for this temporary closure. We have confirmed with the city that due to the size of our event, we will not be able to host our graduations at the amphitheater.


Pirates are critical thinkers and problem solvers. This challenge provides us a unique opportunity to host our graduation at our own campus on our own field. In the coming weeks and months leading up to graduation, we will be working with student leaders, staff, parents, and members of our community to create something special, unique, and beautiful for the seniors graduating here on our campus at Oceanside High School.


Thank you for your patience, understanding, and assistance during this transition.

Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this closure please visit How Do You Oside for more information.
