Integral Elementary School

     Tel: (858)450-4321
Grades: K - 6 | 28 students
A new and innovative K-6 elementary school that maintains an approximate 12:1 student/teacher ratio.
We help the children learn to think critically, and outside the box! Our mission is to inspire a true joy in learning, and to create lifelong learners.
We don’t teach to the test, but rather utilize authentic assessments.
We consider the whole child - mind, body, heart and soul - through unique programs such as individual academic learning plans, daily meditation and yoga, a cutting edge PE program, character development, communication and leadership skill development, and an emphasis on the creative arts as well as academics.

School Notes:

  • Integral Education unites the modern aim of World Knowledge (traditional academics, etc.), with the ancient aim of Self-Knowledge (understanding one's innate gifts, talents, personality, etc.). With both, one tends to make better choices in life, choices that often lead to greater happiness and success. Our unique program:
  • Inspires the Joy of Inquiry and Exploration
  • Maintains a low student/teacher ration of about 12:1
  • Utilizes innovative Holistic educational approaches
  • Meets and exceeds California State Standards
  • Includes cutting edge Physical Education programs such as Awareness Through the Body (ATB) and Yoga for Children.
