Oceanside Performing Arts Center


About Us:

On June 3, 2008, Oceanside voters approved a bond measure, Proposition H, authorizing the Oceanside Unified School District to issue up to $195 million in general obligation bonds for school facility improvements, enabling the district to complete the repairs and modernization effort established under the Proposition G bond construction program to provide high quality facilities for all Oceanside students. In January of 2012 the Oceanside Unified board of trustees unanimously selected an architect from among five finalists to design the Oceanside High Performing Arts Center. The winning firm was Harley Ellis Devereaux.
