Ojai Valley School is an extraordinary place where children like yours come to learn and grow, a place that nurtures and challenges children, and awakens a thirst for knowledge and wisdom. The school’s philosophy is to challenge students’ minds and bodies while fostering self-respect, respect for others, and value for the community in which they live. Our goal is not only to promote scholarship, but to give children the kind of life-learning experiences that will forever shape their world views. This is accomplished in a warm and caring community where children feel safe to grow and explore.
Everyone at OVS knows that a sense of community is an important part of what makes this place special, and everyone is proud to be part of it. Students have numerous opportunities to show leadership, teamwork, and caring. Each student receives a high level of individual attention through small classes taught by knowledgeable, experienced, and caring teachers, facilitating success for children inside and outside of the classroom.
