Our Vision

We believe our school is a community of students, staff, and families working together to ensure ALL students reach their full potential.  We expect our students to question, communicate, creatively solve problems, think critically, and work collaboratively with others.  Students are guided to be responsible people of character who strive to make the world a better place.

Superintendent’s Vision Statement

“The time we have with our kids will be effective and efficient, not wasting one minute, one second while we have them in our hands."


Volunteers collect aluminum cans and plastic bottles (no glass, cardboard or milk jugs) at the back gate and at the top of the drop-off driveway from 8:30 - 9:00. Items should be bagged in plastic bags.

Key of the Month


All 8 keys excellence.jpg

Each month of the school year, the Oceanside Unified School District will focus on one of the 8 Keys of Excellence district-wide.  Students and staff will utilize the monthly key in their academic and professional pursuits.

The 8 Keys of Excellence are part of a character-driven curriculum designed to create a common language between students, staff and parents.  The 8 Keys were developed by Quantum Learning, a research-based educational organization working to enhance student behavior and teacher excellence.  OUSD is proud to partner with QLN in our efforts to enhance character education will all students and staff.

Safety First, Convenience Second!  ThinkActBe.jpg

Procedures for drop off and dismissal: 

  • As always, please allow common courtesy and the importance of safety for all children to be our guide.
  • If you wish to walk your child to classrooms, please park off campus either in the Martin Luther King, Jr. park parking lot or on the streets near school.  Parking is not available in the staff parking lot. 
  • Morning drop off by carline at the white curb in front of the school is available everyday for all students.  Please pull forward to allow as many cars as possible to unload students efficiently at the white curb.  Be prepared for drop off only once you reach the drop off portion of the carline.
  • Please Do Not Stop, Wait, or Park in the bike lane on Mesa Drive.
  • Dismissal at 3:35 for grades 1 through 5 is held at the back gate of the school.   Dismissal for kindergarten only (and siblings) is at the front of the school.  Children are released to parents after contact is made. 
  • Remember dismissal for grades 1-5 is the back gate, kindergarten (and siblings) only in front.

Thanks again for your help in making the Ivey Ranch family so great!
