State Preschool


    If you are interested in our State Preschool Program for the 2022-2023 school year, please fill out the Scribble online interest form which can be found on the bottom of this page. Applications will not be considered until all documents are uploaded to Scribble. 

    OUSD hosts four state-funded preschool sites at Del Rio, Mission, North Terrace, and Santa Margarita Schools.

    Preschool classrooms have an 8:1 student to teacher ratio. All schools feature an instructional practice that is culturally and linguistically tailored to meet the social, emotional, physical and educational needs of each student. Children learn best in an environment with consistent limits and when they are allowed to make choices leading toward self-direction, independence, creativity and divergent thinking.
