San Diego Unified is proud to offer a number of award-winning neighborhood schools along with a variety of other enrollment choices. Visiting your neighborhood school is a great place to start.

Start with your Neighborhood School

Each neighborhood school is unique, but all emphasize strong educational programs that reflect the needs and interests of children and families in their area. The school in each neighborhood is the cornerstone of the community. Neighborhood schools are community learning centers that provide support and continuity for families. It is here that children strengthen ties to their neighborhood, giving them a real connection to the community. The principal at your neighborhood school can share with you what the school's goals and strengths are. You can get to know your neighborhood school by contacting the school directly for a tour and enrollment information. No School Choice application is necessary when planning to attend your neighborhood school.
