Ocean City School District is “committed to excellence” and our highly qualified, excellently prepared, well-trained, and intrinsically-motivated staff allows this commitment to occur. With three schools, numerous options in education, NJ’s Teacher of the Year, and NJ’s Superintendent of the Year our district is always working for your child.
The Ocean City Primary School (OCPS) is proud to be “Partners in Progress” with its staff, students and parents. Together we provide an excellent educational experience for our students residing in Ocean City, Sea Isle and our children in pre-kindergarten through third.
OCPS is rich in technology so that we may bring our 21st Century Learners to the forefront of education and to enhance their learning. Each child is equipped with an IPAD to use to improve literacy achievement. Also, each classroom is equipped with a SMARTboard to utilize and bring learning to life. Character Education plays a very important role in our school. Hallways are named for the principle character traits. These character traits are reinforced during our morning announcements, assemblies and classroom lessons. We embrace the concept of anti-bullying through spirit days and theme weeks that are held throughout the year.
The Ocean City Intermediate School (OCIS) is made up of students in grades four, five, six, seven, and eight, residing in Ocean City and Sea Isle City.

The staff has worked hard to align their curriculum and instruction with the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Outside of the classroom, students are encouraged to act locally and globally, that is, to be contributing members of the school community, the local community, and the global community.
