Ojai Valley School A Century of Giving At the core of Ojai Valley School founder Edward Yeomans beliefs was the concept that children learn best through experience. Yeomans wanted to emphasize experiential learning and a love for the outdoors. He envisioned a place where music, art, and woodshop could be taught alongside math, history, and languages. Today, the breadth of learning experiences offered at OVS is Yeomans legacy.
Your gift has a direct impact on the daily life of the school. O jai Valley School thanks our generous community for supporting Yeomans founding vision through the OVS Annual Fund. 805 6402578 development ovs.org OVS federal tax ID is 951661099
