We are proud parents of OBE students! Every staff member works in unison with parents to create an exiting academic and arts program. Staff makes extra effort to welcome and involve every parent and child. Incredible family, community and business support for programs.
OBE is an awesome school with great academics, community participation, and a great feel. If you are looking for a place where your child will be supported, will excel, and you will be a true part of their education, OBE is the place for you.
The Best School in the area! We toured all schools around and know what a difference this school is making for our kids. Friendly involved staff, principal and parents, beautiful campus & innovative programs. Strong teaching and arts programs. 4th graders attend week long sea camp and all children learn about global and green issues. Thank you OBE! Check out their website at www.obelementary.com
Wonderful staff! Every teacher in this school enjoys what they do and go out of thier way to ensure we work as a team with our children.
We love OB elementary! It has everything you can hope for in a neighborhood school: Good teachers, involved and informed administration, and a great learning experience for our children. Can't say enough about the arts program and special activities for children and our families - great! The school is just the right size that we feel comfortable everyday we send them to school. Thanks for making a difference OB!
Great Community School right in the middle of beautiful OB! Great teachers, great principal, and great activities for my children. When I send them to school, I know that they are happy learning and that they are safe and paid attention to. Lots of child-centered activities and a good arts program. Thank you Ocean Beach Elementary.
This school is a true gem. Couldn't be happier with the quality of education my son recieved attending kindergarten this year at O.B. Elementary. Instead of reading to him at night, he reads to us. It's astonishing. Thank you O.B. Elementary. Amazing teaching staff. Amazing faculty. Awesome 'beach' oriented field trips. The school and the community are one of a kind.
We love this school because teachers and principal believe in the whole child! There's strong music, dance, art,gardening and P.E. that go well with the academics. OB is adding lots of technology and computers to classes. We really like the incentives and the themes of each month. Our boy comes home excited about learning and proud of what he does an his behavior. As for a caring staff who listens and helps and wants the best for our child, we couldn't ask for more.
Parents are invited to be involved, but not really listened. It's a great community, but I expected a lot more from this school. The teachers are very good, but not all classes get equal treatment.
This is a great school! I have never met a more caring and enthusiastic principle and teaching staff. For example, Principal Johnson starts each day with a morning assembly and asks students to lead the pledge or share about why the monthly theme is important to our school. She makes calls to parents just to tell us how she is excited about our children's learning. She knows all of our kids by name and understands that they are all unique and have different strenghs. The teachers are also very good. Parent volunteers are strongly encouraged. And the parent involvement and activities for children and families is excellent.
We are excited to have found this wonderful small school. It has a very friendly atmosphere where everyone takes time to get to know you and to care about our children. They offer many arts experiences for all children. 4th Grade children go to sea camp and study about ocean resources. This school is a hidden gem in our neighborhood.
The school has hard working staff who cares about their students. There are lots of fine arts experiences funded by the PTA such as dance, and artists in residence. The principal is highly visible and knows all students by their names and is always willing to help. There are many incentives for students to show good behavior.
A welcoming neighborhood school where everybody knows and looks out for our children. Teachers and caring and knowlegeable and the principal is always willing to help each child and parent. Many unique activities for children including a great fine arts program.
Great school - great teachers - great principal - awesome kids who have no fear of learning - we love it!
The micromanagement style of the principal deters parent involement. Parents have little say about the problems that exist at the school.
