I have some wonderful and exciting news to share! On Tuesday, September 24, U.S. Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, recognized Ocean Air School as one of 286 schools from across the nation for the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award. Ocean Air was one of 13 California public schools, and one of only two schools in San Diego County, to be recognized. According to State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, “These schools are wonderful illustrations of the work we do here in California schools to prepare our students to thrive in the world they will find outside of our classrooms. I am proud to see them held up as national examples.” As I have shared time and time again, Ocean Air is truly a special place. By combining excellent teaching, remarkable students and exceptional parent and community support, we are able to provide all of our children with a world-class education. Our collective efforts help us to fulfill Del Mar Union School District’s vision of educating for the future: forging a path for tomorrow’s global, innovative thinkers. The entire Ocean Air community can be very proud of the positive recognition granted by the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award, which stands as a mark of excellence in education.

Ocean Air School opened its doors in the Fall of 2007. We started with a student population of nearly 500, and over the past 5 years have grown to nearly 800 students. We are a state of the art school, with a wonderful campus of buildings to meet all of the needs of our students and staff. During the summer of 2011, Ocean Air had our beautiful After School Care building built on our campus. Since we have the most students enrolled in After School Care in the district, this was a much needed addition. During the summer of 2012 we had 2 portable classrooms built on the blacktop in back of the school. Due to our increasing need for additional classrooms, this will offer some much needed space for our student population. We hope you will enjoy this new website as much as we do - and WELCOME to Ocean Air School!
