About this school

We are the smallest of the three elementary schools in South Pasadena. We house two Special Day Classes(specific learning disabilities) for the District, and have clustered Gifted and Talented Education classes for qualifying 4th and 5th grade students. Our local educational foundation sponsors after school enrichment classes for both the fall and spring semesters. We have a District-sponsored preschool for four-year old children as well as a District sponsored kindercare program in the morning and afternoon.
