    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 Content 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 120.  This staff includes our principal,  four classroom 
teachers, a librarian and lab technician, resource and speech specialists, a bi-lingual aide, instructional assistants,  office manager, and custodial/facilities/ground personnel who take care of our beautiful campus.

The state’s new local control funding formula is bringing sweeping changes to the ways schools are funded and how K-12 districts are held accountable.  The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a required component of the new funding formula.  The District’s LCAP was written and developed with input from parents, staff, students and community members.

Message from the Principal...

     I am so happy to be a part of San Antonio School. I join a wonderful staff of teachers and support personnel who are dedicated to serving the needs of our students. 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!

     Our library/lab facility has 32 computer stations, over 5000 books for our K-6 students to choose from, and functions as an important resource center for research projects.   

     Results for our school testing (and others in the state) can be found on the California Department of Education website: Our current API score, based on Spring 2013 testing, is 840.   Individual scores for student achievement based on Spring 2013 have already been mailed to parents.

     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.
