Ocean View Elementary School District is a school district in Southern California in Ventura County. It is located towards the south of Oxnard and encompasses 80 sq mi (210 km2) of land on the coast west of Malibu. The District currently enrolls about 2,500 students in its schools, and contains a diverse ethnic population.
The district contains 1 middle school, 3 elementary schools, and 2 pre-schools. The district itself contains no high schools, so all students graduating the middle school must leave the district, usually to Channel Islands High School, in order to go to high school.
Ocean View Elementary School District was founded in 1872 at the completion of a one-room school house at the corner of what is now Olds and Hueneme roads. As it still does, the district sent its students off to another district for high school completion. In the 1950s, the District added elementary schools and a junior high to accommodate the post-WWII population growth from both Oxnard and the naval bases nearby, specifically Point Mugu Naval Base.

“Dissonance between family and school, therefore, is not only inevitable in a changing society; it also helps to make children more malleable and responsive to a changing world. By the same token, one could say that absolute homogeneity between family and school would reflect a static, authoritarian society and discourage creative, adaptive development in children.”
—Sara Lawrence Lightfoot (20th century)
“Here, in this little Bay,
Full of tumultuous life and great repose,
Where, twice a day,
The purposeless, glad ocean comes and goes,”
—Coventry Kersey Dighton Patmore (18231896)
“If we view our children as stupid, naughty, disturbed, or guilty of their misdeeds, they will learn to behold themselves as foolish, faulty, or shameful specimens of humanity. They will regard us as judges from whom they wish to hide, and they will interpret everything we say as further proof of their unworthiness. If we view them as innocent, or at least merely ignorant, they will gain understanding from their experiences, and they will continue to regard us as wise partners.”
—Polly Berrien Berends (20th century)
“If men as individuals surrender to the call of their elementary instincts, avoiding pain and seeking satisfaction only for their own selves, the result for them all taken together must be a state of insecurity, of fear, and of promiscuous misery.”
—Albert Einstein (18791955)
