Ocean Gate School is located on 126 West Arverne Avenue in Ocean Gate, New Jersey. The town is located on the southern bank of Toms River in Ocean County. The borough encompasses .44 square miles and has a population of 2,023.
In 1914 the original one room school on Arverne Avenue with an outhouse and a pot bellied wood stove was built. All eight grades were taught here. Today this building is occupied by our Kindergarten class.
In 1940 a two room school was built on Barnegat Avenue. In 1956 Ocean Gate became a member of the Central Regional School District. Our students attend the Central Regional School District, in neighboring Berkley Township, for grades seven through twelve.
In 1968 the third building was built on Arverne Avenue. Again in 1994, Ocean Gate School expanded with an addition to the main building.
The School serves grades Pre-K through sixth. We have a full day Pre-K and Kindergarten program.
