Teach School Vision and Mission

Our vision is to empower our students to become innovators, explorers, lifelong learners, and contributors to a diverse global community. The Teach School community (students, parents, and staff) share a commitment to provide rich, varied learning opportunities for all students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, and creatively.

The mission of the Teach Elementary School program is to provide an alternative choice for parents and students in the San Luis Coastal Unified School District. It is designed for students whose needs include a rigorous curriculum, the opportunity for challenge and enrichment, an outlet for creativity and individuality, and an atmosphere that promotes leadership, responsibility, collaboration, and independence.

In addition, Teach has an Emergency Response Plan which provides specific information for response to potential emergency situations, such as earthquake, fire, pandemic flu, etc. We always hope we won't need it, but we are prepared.  

Coffee With the Principal

Our Principal, Mrs. Batistic, is hosting a series of Principal's Coffees this year to provide information to parents and to give parents opportunities to ask questions.  Topics this year include SLCUSD Math Pathways (January 30, 2017) and Social Media Safety for Kids (February 27, 2017).
