Community service opportunities for elementary students are designed by the homeroom teacher and are often planned together with parent volunteers.
Opportunities to serve are abundant both on campus and off campus. Oak Grove School has developed many partnerships with local service agencies such as Help of Ojai, Ojai Youth Foundation, the Humane Society, Ojai Foundation, and several other non-profits in order to develop in our students a sincere and long lasting commitment to community service.
Relationship to others and our local community is a key element of The Art of Living and Learning. Even our youngest students are encouraged to give back to the community-the immediate community of the school and also the community in which we live the beautiful Ojai Valley. As students explore the nature of our relationship to each other and the world, it is hoped that a sense of responsibility takes root and flowers.
