Emptiness

Now scattered to various places across the globe, On The Hill journalists have gathered a series of photographs displaying what is empty and what remains during the COVID-19 pandemic, reminding us that though we are apart, we are together in our experience.

Welcome to Art Alley

A Cut Above

On a cool Wednesday afternoon, in the minutes just before lunch, a dozen OVS community members gathered at the Upper Campus to make a great sacrifice: their hair. The hair cutting campaign was in support of OVS seventh grader Jake Larkin, who at just five years old was diagnosed with Aplastic Anemia, a bone marrow failure disease which is life threatening and extremely hard to cure.  

The Mathemagician

Junior Mark Pindur is a top scholar at Ojai Valley School, and specifically a standout mathematician. Recently he has demonstrated just how much he loves math by rallying together a group of students to showcase their skills in math competitions.

Senior Superstars

After years of watching school concerts, musicals and performances, seniors Aaron Wolf, Thomas Christopher and Aiden Robertson have decided to take on the stage in their final year at OVS by joining the cast of Grease, this year’s winter musical.

Taking The Future By The Reins
