The Solana Beach School District, located in northcoastal San Diego County, serves approximately 3,000 students. Instruction is rich, varied and innovative. Our emphasis is on core standards instruction, provided through a continuous progressive curriculum. State assessments provide evidence that student needs are being met. District schools consistently rank at or near the top in district, county and state accountability measures. Our students and schools have received numerous awards and have been recognized at county, state and national levels for a variety of accomplishments.
Currently, the District has six elementary schools and a seventh Child Development Center: Solana Vista (grades K-3); Skyline (grades 4-6 and the K-6 Global Education Program); Solana Santa Fe (grades K-6); Solana Highlands (grades K-4); Carmel Creek (grades K-4); Solana Pacific (5-6); and a Child Development Center providing toddler, preschool, before and after school support and services. A seventh elementary school, within the Pacific Highlands Ranch community, is in the planning stages.
The District believes that education is a cooperative effort of family, school, and community, and that all children deserve the opportunity for success in school. Solana Beach School District consistently seeks community input and support to create an open environment which encourages excellence and achievement. Students participate in active, hands-on learning activities and are challenged to use higher order thinking skills. Teachers tailor instructional activities to capitalize on children's strengths and systems are designed to provide specialized intervention support.
