Students start their K-12 academic journey through San Diego Unified in one of our many outstanding neighborhood elementary schools. In comparison with schools in other American cities, San Diego Unified elementary and middle schools have demonstrated superior academic progress in recent years. (Source: “San Diego students stand out nationwide with test score improvements,” by Lauryn Schroeder for the Union-Tribune, April 10, 2018.) Elementary school is an opportunity for students to begin exploring their world and interacting with the academic subjects that will shape their future. All elementary schools offer access to the arts and music. Most also provide extended care options to support working parents. We encourage every parent to schedule a tour of their neighborhood school to learn more about the programs and opportunities that are available. Tours are available at tours@sandi.net.
