La Costa Heights will be known as a school where Children come first. We will be a school of teacher leaders who work collaboratively to create an atmosphere which holds high expectations for all students and where each child feels valued for their individual strengths.
We will welcome the collaborative efforts of staff, parents, and community members to provide unique and challenging programs for our students.
La Costa Heights students will be immersed in a thinking, meaning-centered curriculum, which demonstrates relevance to their lives, provides in-depth experiences in all curricular areas, and provides a firm foundation for future learning. Students will be provided a foundation for the technological world which will build strong skills and enhance learning. Each child will develop as a whole person and advance their own creativity. Instruction will recognize developmental stages and individual differences giving students the skills to problem-solve and make choices. Students will learn to appreciate diversity in people and experiences through the instruction of life skills incorporating honesty, team-work, perseverance, and self-reliance.
As a child-centered school, we will take pride and ownership in sharing a commitment and responsibility for educating our students and preparing them for higher learning. Working as a team, we will continue on our quest of our vision - students, teachers, parents, and community members working collaboratively at La Costa Heights to create an atmosphere where learning reaches new heights.
Our mission at La Costa Heights School is to foster confident students who celebrate learning as a lifelong experience. With parents and community collaboration, teachers prepare children to be successful decision makers in a diverse, ever-changing world. Students are educated in a positive and caring environment which promotes the achievement of their personal best, both academically and socially.
