Safety & Security

OCSA has never had an incident with our "Metro riders".  The students have learned to stick together. As the train gets closer to Santa Ana it fills with OCSA students.  Currently, we have about 115 riders coming from all directions!  We encourage all parents to familiarize your students with the stations and the routes they will be taking.  We have taken many precautions to make the Metrolink a pleasant experience for your children.
