Mary Fay Pendleton School is a TK-8th grade school in the Fallbrook Union Elementary School District in Oceanside, California. We are unique in that we are located on board Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base, and most of our students are military dependents. Our students are part of a very unique population with unique challenges, which makes our mission and purpose that much more important to support our students and help them thrive.

Our PTSA runs many projects throughout the year to benefit our school and the education of our children.  From family nights to school field trips; it all happens parent involvement and PTSA.


We couldn't survive without parent volunteers and involvement, so get involved! Join our PTSA today!
