Ocean View belongs to two primary school catchment areas. Areas from Highcrest St and Seaview Crt belong to the Mt Mee State School catchment. Areas from the Ocean View Winery and below belong to the Dayboro State School catchment area. Neither of the these schools currently has a catchment plan in place so these school maps are not available on the Education Queensland website. However, Wamuran State School does have a catchment plan and the pertinent boundaries for the other schools can been seen on this map.
