Dr. James Peterson, Principal
Welcome to Ocean View Elementary Maritime School. My name is Dr. James Peterson and I am the principal at Ocean View. The mission of Ocean View Elementary Maritime School, the foundation of a distinct Norfolk community, is to ensure that all students maximize their academic potential, develop skills for lifelong learning, and function as successful contributing members of their community and society.
In alignment with our mission, Ocean View has been fully accredited by the Commonwealth of Virginia since 2003. Our school was recognized by the United States Department of Education as a National Blue Ribbon School in 2008 and by the Virginia Department of Education as a Distinguished Title I School in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014.
We welcome parents and community groups as partners and look forward to working with you and your child for the continued success of our school.
