Welcome to the Ocean Air website! We are incredibly proud of our school and happy that you have taken the time to visit us online. Our website is a powerful vehicle to enhance communication between home and school and to be a valuable source of school news and timely information.
We are an amazing school in every way, shape and form. Our school, which opened in August of 2007, is state of the art.With a dedicated staff, hard-working students, and involved parents, our school’s academic success, as measured by standardized assessments, places us among the top performing schools in the state. In 2013, Ocean Air was one of only 13 California public schools to be awarded the prestigious National Blue Ribbon School Award which stands as a mark of excellence in education. In 2014, Ocean Air was recognized as a California Distinguished School. We are extremely proud of receiving these awards in recognition of our strong academic performance. However, while very proud of our strong performance, we do not rest on past achievements and continuously strive to improve.In addition to Ocean Air’s rigorous academic program, we understand the value of teaching the whole child. Each week, students receive focused instruction (outside of the homeroom class) by credentialed teachers in the areas of science, music, art, technology, physical education, and enrichment. These Extended Studies Curriculum (ESC) teachers work together with classroom teachers to enhance the core curriculum by providing students with opportunities for hands-on activities, problem-solving, teamwork, and exposure to the fine arts beyond what is possible in the general education classroom.
As part of a quality educational program, it is also our responsibility to support the character development of our children. All students in kindergarten through sixth grade participate in our character education program, PeaceBuilders. This program is designed to evoke a core sense of safety, belonging, support, and competence to deal with life’s inevitable complications and challenges. We are very fortunate to have students, staff and parents who understand the importance of being a PeaceBuilder and creating a respectful environment where students can feel safe physically and emotionally.
Again, thank you for taking a moment to visit our website and we look forward to your involvement in our school.Sincerely,
