The Challenges and Opportunities of Preparing Oceanside Students to be College, Career, and Life Ready
Oceanside is a vibrant coastal community rich in socioeconomic and racial/ethnic diversity. As a result, the needs of our children, youth, and families are equally diverse and increasingly complex.
