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

Senior Caspian Ellis is a go-getter at OVS and a top scholar who continuously defines the ideal student here at the school. As if being a full-time student and participant at OVS wasn’t enough, she also is a nationally ranked equestrian, riding five days a week and competing various times throughout the year.

Rising Star

Sophomore Beckett McDowell has been singing and playing guitar almost since he was born. He plays weekly sets at local bars and venues, and his shows only keep getting bigger and better. He is deadset on being a rockstar, and he is not changing his tune.

The Ride of Her Life

OVS alum Mari Holden started her cycling career on the hills of the Upper Campus and has gone on to win an Olympic medal, a World Championship and, most recently, the honor of being selected as the new Women's Road Coach for USA Cycling.
