"Ocean City Elementary School is a Pre-K through Grade 4 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. The unifying thread of the school is that its staff works as a team with one vision in mind. This vision is to make all students successful academically, as well as behaviorally, and make children productive citizens in our society. To consistently focus on this vision, the school has built a set of rigorous "norms" which are maintained and modeled by all faculty and staff.

Ocean City Elementary School's mission statement is based upon the belief which is reflected in its motto: "I can be anything, I can learn anything, if I believe in myself, and work hard." All faculty and staff believe in the premise that what one expects is what one gets. At OCES, the staff holds high expectations both behaviorally and academically for all children, as well as themselves. The school is committed to providing a safe, orderly, and attractive environment in which on-task behavior is a norm expectation. Its staff is united in its belief that there are "no excuses" when it comes to educating all students."
