Ocean Bay Elementary (OBE), located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, serves over 950 students in a rapidly growing area. We are humbled to be recognized on a national level as a school for having exemplary test scores. This success is a compilation of the hard work of all our stakeholders. We engage and partner with various businesses, churches, and programs. These positive relationships help us succeed.
Although our school has experienced growth, change, and transition, one constant remains - ensuring our students obtain our school vision each day: Learn, Grow, and Achieve. Students at OBE have many opportunities to participate in a wide variety of clubs and activities that serve their diverse interests and abilities. Our staff puts service to children above all else and believe that all children can learn and have the right to learn. Part of the learning and growing excellence at OBE is contributed to the constant reflection on student performance data and adjusting instruction based upon our analysis. Our school disaggregates data to determine strengths and opportunities for growth to determine next steps in instruction. Professional development is intentional to support teachers as we realize we are all life-long learners. We understand that constant analysis and reflection of data, in combination with high expectations and strong relationships with students, are the keys to achievement. We believe in the concept, "It takes a village!" to support the social, emotional, and academic well-being of our students.
