Welcome to Charles F. Blackstock Junior High School; located in south Oxnard. Our award-winning school is part of the Hueneme Elementary School District. Blackstock JHS is currently led by Principal Thomas Beneke and Assistant Principals Maria Granado, Rossana Padilla and Irma Melgoza-Vasquez. Our amazing staff of almost 70 educators strives for excellence on a daily basis to support over 1300 sixth, seventh and eighth grade students.

We have an award winning music and arts program, a wide variety of clubs across our campus and an outstanding after school program available for students.  We provide a positive learning environment that is based on high academic and social expectations for our students.

Our campus is a vibrant collective of educators and lifelong learners who are dedicated to moving our school and community forward in positive directions.  At Blackstock, we continually strive to recognize and celebrate the gifts of our families, our amazing blend of cultures and the rich languages represented in our community.

We have a beautiful campus with a focus on scholarship and an appreciation of world cultures. Our campus is a dynamic space that is constantly changing and adapting itself to reflect the world around us and to best meet the needs of our students.

As community members, you are a valued partner in the important work we do each and every day at Blackstock. Help us celebrate our commitment to excellence by supporting our students and staff.

We encourage students, parents and families to take active roles in the education and activities that take place at Blackstock. We offer parents and community members numerous opportunities to learn more about how to effectively support your child to be as successful as possible! We offer free classes through Triple P parenting classes (with a focus on teenagers), First 5 parent support groups, adult ESL classes, parent academies and more!

Please join us for our monthly Cafe con Leche meetings where guest speakers provide a wealth of information to you and your family. Cafe con Leche also provides you the opportunity to meet with our administrative and counseling teams, on an informal basis, in order to ask questions and get the support that you need.

As part of our commitment to serve our community, the administrative team and I encourage you to email our Blackstock staff with any questions, comments or concerns that you may have regarding your child or our school programs.

If you are a parent and would like to be kept informed of your child's progress, grades and/or assignments from your phone, computer or tablet, please feel free to set up your Parent Connect account. All you need to do is visit our front office, present your photo I.D., and we will provide you with your username and password so that you may access your Parent Connect account. Parent Connect allows you to easily access your child's most current grades, attendance and assignments. Links are also available to email your child's teachers.

At Blackstock, we believe that each and every individual has an essential role to play in moving our students, school and community forward. To assist our students in attaining these goals, we have developed the following:

Blackstock Guidelines for Success:

  • Be prompt - sit quietly and be ready to learn when the bell rings.
  • Be prepared - come to class with supplies and an academic attitude.
  • Be polite - respect all of your classmates, teachers, materials and yourself.
  • Be productive - do your best work and ask for help when needed. 
On behalf of the staff here at Blackstock, we thank you for the opportunity to educate and serve our students, your families and our community!

With Panther Pride,

The Blackstock Administrative Team
