a fairly dysfunctional school that bored our daughter. The level of education was somewhat better than the local public schools but lacks the spark that a great school has. Wasn't very responsive to the needs of our child and suffered from being a bit formula driven.

What a beautiful and safe place that teaches the important values in life. Students are taught to learn and not to perform. The curriculum offers lots of art, theatre, gardening, Japanese and music. There is no TV in the class room and parents are asked to keep the children 'media free' on weekdays. ...  Read more

My son went to eighth grade at Ocean Charter. It was an awful experience for us, his teacher was incredibly inept. If there is a problem, the staff blame the student for anything that is less than satisfactory. The special ed is especially lacking.

Your child will be happy here, in a way you never thought was possible at a public school (or at least in California public schools over the past dozen years). Homework, curriculum, instructional techniques, and classrooms are all designed with the child in mind. Sometimes it can be worrying that your ...  Read more

What is the last poster talking about? Homelessness is like a permanent vacation. Seriously, though, do you think the principal would tell other families, "Have a nice vacation." And, then, point to the homeless mom and say, "Oh, you poor dear. Good luck to you finding a home over the holiday." Give ...  Read more
