Pearl Preparatory School
Pearl Prep uses a hands-on approach to education. All students go on monthly field trips in coordination with the classroom curriculum.
Pearl offers beginning band and recorder band to our 4th and 5th graders, so that all students will learn how to read music before graduating from Pearl. These bands perform at least three times throughout the school year.
Pearl has a comprehensive computer curriculum that teaches students how to do word processing, publishing, spreadsheets and Power Point presentations as young as 1st grade.
Pearl strives to 'Inspire Desire' within our students. We at Pearl believe that students learn more when they are having fun!
Pearl has a strong academic curriculum to prepare our students for college prep education. Students also compete academically in math and spelling competitions.
Pearl offers a wide variety of performing arts. Students will participate in the all-school choir and will perform before a large audience at least three times a year.
Academic success is important at Pearl. With our hands-on approach, our students score one to two years advanced in the major core subjects based on national standardized tests.
Students attend science camps each year including trips to Catalina Island, a covered wagon trip in Palm Desert and sailing on a Tall Ship in San Diego.
