OUR SCHOOL

"I have a curious mind, a caring heart, and the courage to never give up!"

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Ocean City Elementary School is to prepare students to pursue a career of their choice and to become productive citizens. The school motto: "I have a curious mind, a caring heart, and the courage to never give up" encourages and empowers students to seek information, love learning, treat others with kindness and respect, and to always, always work hard. The type of student we hope to grow is a continuous learner, an appreciator of the arts, and a giver of their personal gifts. At OCES, teachers and staff follow the motto and hold high expectations for themselves and their students. There is a commitment to provide a safe, orderly, caring and attractive environment in which students can learn and grow. The staff, parents and students are united in their commitment to educate students to be leaders of the future.
