Our Educational Philosophy

We believe in the “Total” Child – As both parents and teachers we feel it is extremely important to balance both the academic and social needs of our children. Academically, we provide Del Mar Union’s excellent, well researched, common core and state-standards (CCSS) based curriculum infused with our experience, expertise, and individual personalities.  Using this curriculum, we are able to foster a love of learning, genuine curiosity, problem solving skills, and the solid building blocks of all subject areas necessary for future learning.  Socially, we provide a safe, warm, loving, age appropriate environment where students feel comfortable to work as a team, respect everyone and every thing, and at the same time, build individual integrity.  It is our belief that during instructional minutes at school, we have the opportunity to grow and learn not only from our books, but also from each other.
