San Gabriel Mission Elementary School Photo #1 - Founded in 1912, San Gabriel Mission Elementary School is nestled in the heart of San Gabriel's Historic Mission District and adjacent to the California Landmark, Mission San Gabriel Archangel. Mission Elementary has educated students and prepared leaders for over 100 years.
Now in our 100th year of service, San Gabriel Mission Elementary, adjacent to the historical San Gabriel Mission, is one of California`s longest operating Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade parish schools.
We are committed to academic excellence through a standards-based curriculum, which is enriched by the Dominican and Claretian charisms of sharing the Word and Truth of Jesus Christ.
We are dedicated to developing each child`s full potential through our Schoolwide Learning Expectations.
As a faith-based community, students, parents, teachers, staff, administration, and clergy witness the Gospel message through worship, community service and daily life experiences.
