PRINCIPAL’S WELCOME MESSAGE
The OCS-South Owls are a community of engaged, caring, and eager students, parents, and staff committed to the academic learning and social emotional development of all our students! Our community is comprised of 260 students in Transitional Kindergarten through 4th grade, their families, and a stellar group of educators who embrace our values of academic excellence, community, diversity, and inclusion. I invite you to explore our website and learn more about who we are and what we do at OCS-South. – Dr. Carlos Garcia Saldaña, Principal
OCS-South opened in Fall of 2018 to provide the students and families of the Pasadena community a quality public school option. Through the relentless commitment of teachers, staff, and parents OCS-South provides students an educational experience that weaves the components of academic excellence, social-emotional wellbeing and development alongside social responsibility in a small, nurturing, and supporting environment. For 2020-2021, OCS- South will enroll students in grades TK through 6th, and will grow incrementally until reaching 500 students in grades TK through eighth in 2023-2024.
