    The school itself is alright, but some of the teachers need to get over their god-like complex. A notable characteristic of OVS is their outdoor education program, there are a variety of trips to choose from. Every other week or so, there is a camping trip/other outdoorsy activity. It is a bit strict, but I am somewhat biased as a boarding student. The town OVS is located in, Ojai, has a quaint, artsy feel to it and has plenty of events to participate in!

    Ojai Valley School has more potential than anyone knows what to do with, this school has the bones of one of the best private boarding schools in the country yet it maintains the malleability that allow devoted teachers and students to influence the school extremely directly. However, the admin is extremely out of tune with the Teachers and Students, when bringing issues to the Head of School pretty much everything is "over his head" any real changes have to go through a governing body that doesn't interact with students and doesn't understand the potential that is contained within the high powered students and teachers. Ojai is the best place in the world to go to school and OVS is an example of this. I have loved my time at OVS for all of its quirks and frustrations and as with any school experiencing growing pains its in an awkward stage and will get better within a couple years.
    The OVS community is one of the most amazing I have ever witnessed. Everyone is extremely welcoming and supportive. I had a good relationship with all my teachers as well as Mr.Floyd, the upper school head, who is one of the most hardworking people I've ever met. The school works hard to provide borders with fun activities and opportunities to go out of school and discover new places. The outdoors education program is quite unique and provides students with opportunities they would many times not normally have. The students are mostly friendly and open as well. My experience at The Ojai Valley School was an overall great one and I highly recommend the school.
