Pacific Beach Elementary

Course of Study

Welcome to Pacific Beach Elementary School, where excellence in education meets a commitment to academic rigor. As the principal, I am proud to announce that our institution is dedicated to implementing the California Common Core State Standards (CA CCSS) to ensure that every student receives a high-quality education.
The California Common Core State Standards provide a framework that emphasizes critical thinking, problem-solving, and real-world application of knowledge and skills. By aligning our curriculum with these standards, we are preparing our students to thrive in an ever-changing world, equipping them with the tools they need to succeed academically and beyond.
At Pacific Beach Elementary, we believe in fostering a culture of continuous improvement. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing rigorous instruction that challenges and inspires students to reach their full potential. Through innovative teaching methods, personalized learning experiences, and a supportive learning environment, we strive to empower every student to excel.
As we embark on this journey together, I encourage you to actively engage in your child's education and partner with us to ensure their success. Together, we can cultivate a community of lifelong learners who are prepared to tackle the challenges of the future with confidence and competence. Standards can be found HERE.
In addition to the CCSS, we are proud to announce the integration of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) into our academic offerings at PBE.
STEAM education fosters critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and problem-solving skills, preparing our students for the challenges of the future. By incorporating STEAM principles into our curriculum, we aim to empower our students to become versatile thinkers and lifelong learners who are well-equipped to thrive in a rapidly evolving world.
Our STEAM program will engage students in hands-on, interdisciplinary learning experiences that encourage exploration, experimentation, and discovery. Through project-based activities, real-world applications, and opportunities for creative expression, students will deepen their understanding of core concepts while developing essential 21st-century skills.
Moreover, the integration of STEAM into our curriculum aligns with our mission to nurture well-rounded individuals who are not only academically proficient but also socially conscious and technologically adept. By embracing STEAM education, we aim to inspire curiosity, ignite passion, and cultivate a love for learning among our students.
We invite you to join us on this exciting journey. Together, let us empower our students to unleash their full potential and make meaningful contributions to our ever-changing world. You can learn more HERE.



School and district policies require homework and outside reading on a regular basis. Each teacher has a homework policy that meets these requirements. Your child will bring home a copy of the policy for his or her classroom during the first few weeks of school.
