Information for Parents


Ocean Knoll Elementary School is located in Encinitas, California and has served multiple generations of kindergarten through sixth grade children since 1959. Ocean Knoll’s International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program, authorized in 2013, provides all our students a broad, deep, and engaging education in which students master twenty-first century knowledge and skills through a rich, interdisciplinary curriculum. It is an academically challenging curriculum, requiring students to take initiative, research, organize, and complete projects, and speak in front of their classmates, preparing our children for critical thinking, community service, and college-level coursework.

In keeping with the school's philosophy that children learn best when they are actively involved in their own learning, concepts and skills are introduced and reinforced using inquiry-based learning. Students engage in interdisciplinary projects in each grade, developing their collaboration and critical thinking skills and allowing students to approach topics from multiple angles and disciplines. As students deepen their skills and knowledge in literacy and math, they also broaden their education through weekly and bi-weekly specialty classes in science, nutrition and garden, Spanish, music, and yoga. As students advance through the grades, they can take on greater school-wide roles and responsibilities.  Older students act as mentors to younger students through the SOAR program. They also participate in the Kinder Care Club, the Green Team, the Commissioners Club and on the school basketball teams.


Our program serves as a springboard for children’s love of learning, creativity, and readiness for the future where children reach their full social and academic potential. As an IB community, we value our nurturing environment that fosters inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
