Visit Our School

We welcome the opportunity to meet with you and your family in person to gain an understanding of your child’s needs and interests, and to share our school’s true experience. Tours are scheduled Monday–Thursday when school is in session; optimal start time is 9:00 am. A campus tour lasts approximately 60 minutes and provides parents with an opportunity to watch the teaching process unfold – in the classrooms, on the playing field, in the lab, and in the visual/performing arts’ studios. To schedule a tour, please complete our inquiry form or contact Jenni Beadle at 760-436-1102 x 302.
