Skyline School, a 2012 California Distinguished School, is located on Lomas Santa Fe Drive in Solana Beach. It was built in phases between 1955 and 1961, and underwent a substantial modernization project in the summer of 2000.
Skyline has an enrollment of 500 students with 20 instructional classrooms, in addition to a computer lab, a science lab, an art room, music room, activity center and library/media center. The student profile is composed of 74% Caucasian, 20% Hispanic, 5% Asian, and 1% Other. Educational programs include a 4th – 6th grade program, a K-6 Global Education program, and a K-6 Special Education program.
Skyline has a strong educational program that emphasizes a positive and supportive learning environment with clear and consistent standards for behavior. The students at Skyline School demonstrate high academic achievement in their class work and on their standardized test scores. Skyline consistently ranks at or near the top in the county and state in standardized testing. At present, its API score is 928. The high scores are due, in part, to parent involvement.
Parents support Skyline by volunteering, fundraising, and participating in school activities. They are actively involved in the decision-making processes by participating on the School Site Council and Parent Teacher Association (PTA). Skyline is a great place to attend elementary school!
