The YMCA is located on campus and offers both before and after care. Ojus Elementary does not endorse any particular service.

We are proud to announce that Ojus Elementary has earned a BRONZE school "STEAM" designation
The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) program is designed to introduce our students, at an early age, to fields of study that will be in high demand. We teach our students to be problem solvers and logical thinkers by peeking their natural interest and curiosity in exploring how things work though involvement in fun, experiential, engaging activities, starting at a young age. We strive to create a lifetime love of learning for your child.
