The Spirit of Community

Ojai Valley School second grader Zayd Davis, along with his sister and cousins, put their evacuation time to good use last week, making and selling bracelets to raise money for an OVS classmate who lost his home to the Thomas Fire.

College Bound

As May 1 rolled around, OVS seniors joined students across the country in choosing where they would spend the next four years of their college lives. As with senior classes in previous years, students in the Class of 2017 at Ojai Valley School will attend a diverse collection of colleges and universities across the country.

Peeling Back the Layers

Guest artist Larry Mullins, father of sophomore Maya Mullins, contributed his talent and expertise recently to art students at the Upper Campus. His observational and layered style is reflected in the work he did with the art students, who focused on creating acrylic oil skins. A professional artist by trade, Mr. Mullins describes himself as a process artist, which emphasizes the actual process of creating art rather than embarking with a set plan or end goal.

Producing Results

As he was earning a degree from Columbia University's vaunted fine arts graduate program, OVS alum Chris Cole turned an early interest for documentary filmmaking into the business of producing films for the big screen. His movie, Entonces Nosotros, was recently screened at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.

Sweet Science

Five Ojai Valley School students, ranging from sixth to eighth grade, took top honors at the Ventura County Science Fair, with a handful qualifying to go on to compete at the state level.
