Our District

About OUSD


All students graduate college and career ready, prepared to be responsible global citizens and ambitious future leaders.


Students First: Our students are our highest priority. Every decision is made to maximize our students’ well-being. 

Educational Equity: Every student receives the academic, social, and emotional support needed to thrive. Resources are allocated to address achievement and opportunity gaps.

Diversity: Our learning community’s diverse cultural experiences and intellectual variance drives our collective and individual success. 

Collaborative Relationships: We foster learning environments where meaningful collaboration occurs. Members of our learning community forge respectful relationships based on integrity, empathy and dignity. Our community schools initiative and the support to military-affiliated students are just a couple ways OUSD continues showing up for everyone in the district.
