About Torrey Pines Elementary:
Torrey Pines Elementary is located upon a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in La Jolla, California. We are part of a wonderful, close-knit, residential neighborhood. Many TPES students walk or ride their bikes to school.

TPES provides a rigorous academic environment for approximately 420 children in Grades K-5. Researched teaching methodologies are used to advance each student to his or her next level of success in all academic areas. Our mission is to provide an environment conducive to student learning where each child feels successful, achieves academically, and thinks critically. Administrators, teachers, parents, and the community work together to create and maintain a comprehensive curriculum based on student needs and state standards. The La Jolla YMCA is across the street from TPES and is an important partner in our extended childcare, sports enrichment, and P.E. programs.

An important part of our success is our parent involvement. TPES parents volunteer many hours to the school, helping with everything from reading to science to art. In addition, parents raise funds for curriculum support. Through the TPES Foundation, parents fund art, choral music, technology, and P.E programs. This means that we are able to include education in subject areas that we consider important but that are no longer fully funded by our state and federal governments.

Torrey Pines consistently performs at a very high level on state assessments of student achievement. Since 2008 Torrey Pines has ranked in the top three elementary schools in the school district and has maintained a statewide ranking and similar school ranking of 10 out of a possible 10.
