Principal's Message

Dear Alta California Community,


Thank you for choosing Alta California Elementary School and Gifted Magnet as the foundation for your child’s education. At Alta, we are committed to bringing the highest quality education and providing the best experience for your child to grow academically, socially and emotionally.


Alta is a school on the move! Test scores are increasing. Students are energized and motivated to learn. We bring events, fun, extra-curricular activities, arts, music and electives to enhance your students’ experience.


As an ESBMM and Community School, we are able to have the flexibility to respond to student and community needs. ESBMM provides shared decision making where parents and staff make decisions based on what is best for students. It is a powerful forum to enrich your child’s education and keep Alta progressing forward. As a Community School, we provide wraparound services that build up the community and develop the whole child.


As the school’s leader, I am always looking to create partnerships to enhance the school. Together, we find solutions that will improve our school. Together, we make Alta the beacon of the community. Together, we raise our children to become the next generation that we take pride in.
