This school has went down hill fast over the past 3-5 years. API score is incorrect and this inaccuracy is known by the superintendent. Several concerned parents have requested meetings with principals & superintendent, only to be turned away. Enrollment is at an all time low & continuing to drop. Beware!

Teachers are left without resources. Many senior teachers are only present for their 10 year, little concern for students.

This school is the best! I haven't been to other schools before, but I know this school's staff and teaching skills are excellent.

Descanso Elementary is truly the best school in San Diego County. My children have attended several other schools: Jamacha, Magnolia, Bostonia, and Joan MacQueen Middle. Descanso has an amazing, experienced staff. The leadership at this school is outstanding!

I am a former student of Descanso Elementary and my exerience there was very positive. In such a small school each child recieves individual attention and tutoring. Children are taught the importance of the environment, getting along with others and proper behavior. I had a great deal of trouble with math when I was younger and I recieved tutoring in each case without having to ask for it. This school was a very positive place to start my education.
