My relationship with Oak Grove began when I first visited the campus in 1997. I had never been to Ojai before. My husband Kevin and I came up for the day to see the Krishnamurti school. It was a weekend, so quiet, but I felt connected to this place instantly. This campus has a magic that is difficult to put into words.

Technology keeps us connected in ways not possible during other times in human history. It has saved lives, improved efficiencies, and made for more effective communication. Technology allows us to work remotely, which can have a positive impact on our carbon footprint. 

Interacting with the greater Krishnamurti community, immersing themselves in a different culture, and making new friends at their sister schools are three of the intentions of Oak Grove’s annual senior trip to India.

“Our Pandemic Story,” installed inside the school’s new Reflective Classroom, gives students, families and staff the opportunity to share their individual pandemic stories and to create a shared, community-wide story, according to Head of School Jodi Grass.

Humans are social animals. Does the quantity and quality of our social relationships impact our state of health, future risk of disease, and our life span?  Are the effects of relationships via social media the same or different from those of in-person relationships? Please join our presenter Dr. Pathik Wadhwa in a discussion that will touch on the biological and behavioral science behind social relationships, both in-person and virtual.

Former Head of School, Meredy Benson Rice, now the Director of Teaching and Learning spoke about her personal journey as an educator and how students experience education at Oak Grove School as part of the 2015 Do Lecture Series.
