Schools serve as the learning haven for kids and a good foundation is what we need indeed. Find here on this page what the best schools in Rancho Santa Fe can offer you.

"The Nativity school is exceptional! The teachers are outstanding, really get the kids excited about what they are learning. Communication at this school amazes me, so organized and I feel we are always informed. If you are looking for a place that your child will be excited to go to everyday and where you will always know what's going on at school this is the place."

"My son has an IEP and the team at SSF has been amazing. Almost every teacher, aide and staff member in the whole school is bright, interested and innovative. He has HFA and a very high IQ so offers odd challenges and they meet them with grace and enthusiasm. Principal Bering is great!"

"This school is Amazing! No class has over 20 kids in it when most public schools in CA have up to 35 per class! The parent community cares about the kids and helps to make up for public funding shortfalls by supporting the education foundation. My kids are getting an excellent public education for a FRACTION of the cost of private school. This district impresses me so much - I just found out that the board members have no pay - they work for free! They felt it was wrong to take money from the kids! Where else does that happen???"

"Great school, I attended K-8 and absolutely loved it. All of my teachers were wonderful, and for a public school, it is a top quality education. The class sizes are the same as a private high school. I loved the education that I received."

"Our two children have done very well at this school. Solana Santa Fe is what a school should be: an organization that helps those who earn the right to an excellent education, and does well to remove students and other elements that might distract from the betterment of the whole. Overall, we can't imagine how any other school could do a better job in today's increasingly difficult and more competitive arena. Our children have been encouraged and driven to excell, and that they have. Thank you Solana Santa Fe!"

"Diegueno Country School prepared my son with tools which set him equal to and ahead of his peers. The foundation of knowledge, reading, writing, arithmetic, creative thinking, and being a good citizen is solid. The opportunities to learn individually and through group environments created unique experiences to assist in problem solving and working with others. The leadership of Diegueno Country School is focused on maintaining a high quality teaching staff which equips these children with the life lessons to succeed positively, academically, and socially into their future selves."
