Principal's Corner

  • Katie Zimmer, Principal Welcome to Solana Vista Elementary School. I am thrilled to be principal of Solana Vista and honored to lead our students and teachers into the world of 21st century learning.  I have been in education for 30 years and a part of Solana Beach School District for 24 years.  It is an honor to be part of a school district that provides a well-rounded education for all of its students.

    Solana Vista is a Kindergarten through 3rd grade school serving about 450 students.  Our school emphasizes a positive and supportive learning environment that focuses on academic rigor and social/emotional growth.

    The teachers at Solana Vista are dedicated to the implementation of the California State Standards. We have embraced the Next Generation Science Standards in the classroom and in our dynamic STREAM (Science, Technology, Research, Art, Mathematics) Discovery Lab programs.

    Parents volunteers are a key component to the child centered culture of Solana Vista.  School Site Council, PTA, Solana Beach Schools Foundation, Dad’s Club and classroom volunteers are just a few of the ways parents can be a part of Solana Vista.

    I look forward to getting to know all the students and parents in this awesome community and helping our children reach their highest potential.

    Katie Zimmer
