Will you be new to the San Carlos School District in the 2024-25 School Year? Welcome! Although all school offices are closed for the summer, you can still register new students online through PowerSchool Enrollment. Important Notice: We have limited space and high demand for Transitional Kindergarten (TK), 2nd grade, 5th grade, and 8th grade. Student placement is based on a first-come, first-served basis, so if your child is registering for one of these grade levels, please register ASAP. For any questions, email us at [email protected].

Message from Our Principal

We offer a range of elective classes providing both support and enrichment opportunities for students.  After a major remodel and addition completed during the 2014-2015 school year, our students moved into a brand new building designed with innovative learning spaces that encourage community building, flexible groupings and blended learning.  Approximately 555 sixth through eighth grade students are enrolled during the 2017-18 school year, with classes arranged on a modified block schedule with a traditional calendar.  We share our campus with Arroyo School (a 4/5 upper elementary school), which opened in the fall of 2016.
