The Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) is a proud partner and supporter of Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton (MCBCP). Together, the district and the base are two of the largest employers and most important entities in the Oceanside community.
In an effort to strengthen and maintain this excellent collaborative partnership, and to help benefit the students and families stationed at MCBCP, the district is pleased to provide this Web page as a resource to our military families, particularly during such a challenging global period.
MCBCP is the Corps’ largest west coast expeditionary training facility and one of the busiest installations overseen by the Department of Defense. The base covers more than 200 square miles and provides housing to more than 38,000 military family members. A majority of the base housing units reside within OUSD attendance boundaries.
Each school year, as many as 2,500 military children attend one of three OUSD K-8 base schools: North Terrace, Santa Margarita and Stuart Mesa. All three campuses have been named California Distinguished Schools by the State Board of Education - an honor bestowed on only five percent of the state’s schools!
As you settle in to your new surroundings in North County, we hope you find this page useful in helping to locate services as your child begins his/her educational journey in our outstanding district. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our district office at 760-966-4000.
