One of the things that makes living at Belmont at Park Bridge great is its proximity to excellent schools, including Ocee Elementary School, an easy five-minute drive at just a little over a mile away.
And families don’t have to make that drive every day if they don’t want to! Instead, most choose to take advantage of the bus service offered by the Fulton County Schools Transportation Department. Drivers are trained to operate safe, clean, and well-maintained school buses. Their mission is to deliver students safely to school on time and in a frame of mind ready to learn. Students are delivered to school under the dry bus awning, early enough to participate in the breakfast program, and will never be counted tardy regardless of arrival time!
Rated in the top 10% of all schools in Georgia by Public School Review, Ocee places an emphasis on clear and concise expectations for students, which helps foster a fun yet focused learning environment. From hands-on science experiments to interactive math and reading exercises that incorporate current real-life examples—like learning to use a debit card—the teachers at Ocee are always looking for unique ways to engage their students.
“Ocee Elementary School placed in the top 10% of all schools in Georgia for overall test scores (math proficiency is top 10%, and reading proficiency is top 10%) for the 2020-21 school year.” —Public School Review
Ocee is an A-rated school on Niche in all categories—academics, diversity, and teachers. And with class sizes at an average 14:1 student to teacher ratio, the teachers are able to get to know the kids in their classes for the unique individuals they are.
“Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be A Problem Solver” –The Ocee Way
This is a school that understands parent participation in a child’s education is paramount, which is why it offers Ocee Parent Universities, lecture-style sessions hosted once a month that discuss topics relevant to parenting an engaged student. “Building Literacy Skills at Home” and “Supporting Your Virtual Learner” are just two examples.
It also offers students and their families support with after-school programs like tutoring and YMCA, as well as a wide variety of vendor-provided activities:
- Discover Science
- Kids Yoga
Ocee student groups include Chorus (fourth- and fifth-grade), Reading Bowl, and Reading Academy.
The team at Belmont at Park Bridge knows that families considering where to live also want to review primary source data about the school their children will attend, which is why we want to make it easy for everyone to find the Georgia Schools Grade Report on Ocee, issued by the Governor’s Office of Student Achievement. The last one issued was for 2019; the state notes that for school years 2020 and 2021, various pandemic-related issues resulted in a lack of data for most metrics, which meant no grades were issued.
We would love for you and your littles to call Belmont at Park Bridge home—and become proud Ocee Otters! We get so much enjoyment out of greeting the kids and hearing about their days when they get off the school bus, especially when we are having one of our ice cream socials for them.
