From Oak Grove School

Inspired by the original intent and statement of philosophy left by the school’s founder J. Krishnamurti, the mission of Oak Grove School is to assist students in developing those qualities of mind, heart, and body that will enable them to function with excellence, care, and responsibility in the modern world. In addition, it is the intention of the school to offer a place where the whole community can inquire together into the perennial questions of humankind and explore an approach to life that is whole, mindful and intelligent.

Our approach to learning from Pk through College Prep, emphasizes depth over coverage, project-based learning, a model of student-as-worker/teacher-as-coach, a genuine appreciation of each student’s unique capabilities, and the balance of traditional assessments with authentic assessment practices such as portfolios, demonstrations of learning and student exhibitions.

    So fortunate to be at a school like OGS, and to be living in beautiful Ojai! Previously living in Venice/Santa Monica area and were ready to raise our boys in a smaller community, but still wanting to be close to friends and family in LA. We have found such an amazing community of parents, teachers, and for us and our two boys, and we all made close friends quickly. Oak Grove School really focuses on the heart and soul of what it is to become a comfortable creative and competent human. It all happens on one of the most beautiful campuses ever. Our boys love having little buddies and buddies in the high school. The students in the high school boarding program include international students to the mix of really interesting and cool high school kids. We feel reassured by what we see happening in junior high and high school that our boys are going to have a super positive experience. The boys are thriving academically, and it feels like our whole family is flourishing at Oak Grove.

    I couldn’t be happier with my son’s experience at Oak Grove. Oak Grove is so unique; it’s what I would refer to as an intimate high school experience. Many schools claim they know their students well, but Oak Grove emphasizes being in relationship with their students. The teachers are partners with the students in their journey - learning themselves and growing, modeling, and coaching the students throughout their HS career. All of this while being a full-fledged college-prep school. The family-style boarding facility was also just what I needed for him. It’s small, intimate, and I felt very comfortable feeling like he had another family while there. My son not only learned, he developed a curiosity and a love for learning. Oak Grove not only provided an ideal atmosphere for his high school years, it also fully prepared him for his college experience afterward.
    We moved from Washington DC to Ojai, CA so our 3 daughters could be at Oakgrove School. The intention of the school as set forth by it's founder J. Krishnamurti over 40 years ago offers a template for the administrators and educators here on how to foster a climate for living and learning. The girls have been receiving an excellent education not only in academics but for living their lives in full expression of their individual personalities. It is this school, the teachers, campus, the focus on the whole child and not just how to get children into the top colleges when they graduate. And yet, kids here pave their way to their desired colleges, they are authentic, they know who they are above all and know they possess an innate knowing to consciously design their life on their own terms. We are so grateful that Oakgrove exists and that our girls can be here.
