WAMA 2022 Summer Art Camp Registration is OPEN.



In an effort to provide a safer and more hygienic way of attending OSSD sporting events, our athletic department has partnered with GoFan to move to a paper-free way of electronic ticketing.

This means that tickets for any OSSD athletic event will now be purchased completely online, with a digital copy of the ticket being sent to your device. Game attendants can then scan the electronic ticket off of your device when you enter the event just as they would with a paper ticket.

Our goal is to provide a more hygienic way of attending events by eliminating unnecessary exchanges of cash and paper.

To purchase tickets using GoFan:

  1. Visit
  2. Search "Ocean Springs."
  3. Select your school and event.
  4. Complete the steps on-screen to checkout.

The building above served as the public high school from 1927-1966. It is now serves as a cultural arts center for the Ocean Springs community and carries the name of former OSSD Superintendent, Mary C. O'Keefe.

The City of Discovery
Ocean Springs, also known as "The City of Discovery," rests along the coast of Mississippi on the shores of the Biloxi Bay and Gulf of Mexico. The small community of about 17,000 features quiet beaches, close-knit downtown scene, and a robust arts community.
Ocean Springs earned its nickname from the French, an establishment of theirs in 1699 by Pierre Le Moyne D'Iberville. Since that time, the community has grown to 17,000 strong, with heavy influences from the arts community.
Notable artists like Peter Anderson, Walter Anderson, and George Ohr made Ocean Springs their home, and inspiration for their artwork.
Ocean Springs serves as hosts of the annual Peter Anderson Arts Festival, a weekend-long arts festival that brings hundreds of thousands of visitors to downtown.
The 1927 Public School
Due to overcrowding in a growing community and a necessity for centralized learning, a new city public school was opened in 1927 as "Ocean Springs High School." Miss Mary C. O'Keefe was the first Superintendent of Public Schools at Ocean Springs, and the former high school building is named in her honor.
Present Day
In 1966, Ocean Springs High School moved out of the 1927 school and into what is now Ocean Springs Upper Elementary, where they stayed until summer of 2012. In 2012, a new, state-of-the-art school was completed along Old Spanish Trail, on the far-east end of the city.
