    What we offer

    San Antonio School is a California Distinguished School, nestled in the east end of rural Ojai Valley at the foot of Ojai's Topa Topa Mountains.  The surrounding orange groves and majestic oaks make the San Antonio campus a unique public school setting.  San Antonio Elementary has been in existence for over 100 years.  While students, staff, and local Ojai residents cherish its historical significance, the school is moving into the future with an academic standard of excellence through study and mastery of the California Common Core State Standards.  This rigorous course of study provides many challenges and opportunities for individual growth, and teachers provide instruction to accommodate the different learning styles and skill levels of students in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, Science, Technology, and the Performing Arts.  

    The staff is dedicated to providing a safe and supportive learning environment for the K-6 student population of about 150.  This staff includes our principal,  five classroom 
teachers, a librarian and lab technician, resource and speech specialists, instructional assistants,  office manager, and custodial/facilities/ground personnel who take care of our beautiful campus.

Message from the Principal

     San Antonio School is an ideal choice for families looking for a small school where students are loved and appreciated.  San Antonio has a wonderful staff of teachers and support personnel who are dedicated to helping students reach their full potential.  Together we strive to create an environment that balances strong academic learning along with positive character development. 

Parents, please check our school schedule.  Just click on "Daily Schedule/Transportation" at left to find a detailed bell schedule.  Please note, grades 1-6 will be dismissed at 2:10 p.m. each week day except for Wednesday.  On Wednesday all students will be dismissed at 12:05 p.m.  The school lunch program will continue to be available every day of the week.

     Our monthly assemblies, one of San Antonio's special traditions, are held in our lovely amphitheater.  We feel it is important to share the flag salute, a patriotic song, and updates on events and PTO activities with all students.  We also utilize this time to recognize student achievement, exemplary behavior or special talents.  In addition, our Chair of Distinction is reserved for students whose outstanding behavior exemplifies the characteristics we promote, especially kindness and friendship.  The view from the amphitheater is especially beautiful, encompassing the surrounding orange groves and the local Topa Topa mountains - parents, we hope you can join us at our assemblies!

     I invite you to visit our campus by making an appointment through our office at (805) 640-4373. We would love to take your on a tour of the school and answer any questions you may have on enrollment, curriculum or programs.

San Antonio School Mission Statement

    At San Antonio our mission is to provide students with a unique and exceptional education that focuses on the whole child.  As a school community, we strive to offer our students an outstanding intellectual, physical, and social curriculum, a rich variety of experiences, and a commitment to student success.  Our hope is to work together as students, parents, and staff in an atmosphere of trust, respect, collaboration, and compassion.  Our vision is to be a happy place where learning is both challenging and fun.


Curriculum objectives for your child's grade level

We teach to the California Common Core State Standards.  Educational standards describe what students should know and be able to do in each subject in each grade. In California, the State Board of Education decides on the standards for all students, from kindergarten through high school.

Since 2010, 45 states have adopted the same standards for English and math. These standards are called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Teachers, parents, and education experts designed the standards to prepare students for success in college and the workplace.

You can contact your child's teacher for more information, or look at the website for the California Department of Education,
