We are an incredibly special community school with exemplary educators and dedicated parents who partner together to create educational and enrichment opportunities to support our amazing students. La Jolla Elementary School is an award winning school of excellence.  In 2018 we were recognized as a California Distinguished School, which was our third state recognition awarded for exemplary instructional practices and high student achievement. In 2016, we also received national recognition through the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award for Exemplary High Performing Schools. These accomplishments are due to the hard work of a school community who cares deeply about meeting the needs of our diverse student population by providing them with rigorous academic instruction and a comprehensive educational and enrichment program. Our community of learners is made up of outstanding students, an expert and dedicated staff of caring professionals, active and involved parents, and a supportive community. We are committed to working together toward the success of all of the children at La Jolla Elementary.
