School Boundary Information
The Del Mar Union School District School Locator is published for your convenience. It is a quick reference guide to the streets included in the District's attendance area. Enter your complete address, city and zip code and "Find My Schools." Zoom in using the + symbol. The house icon can also be dragged to a more accurate location on the map. Only the elementary school within your attendance area will be listed. If two schools are listed that means the address is in an Option Area.
Please note: Every effort is made to place students at the school in their attendance area; however, due to the growth within DMUSD in the last several years and the District’s commitment to maintain balanced, low class sizes at all school sites, we must inform you that students are placed at a school on a space available basis. If you have specific questions regarding streets in the area or have a question about whether or not a prospective house may be in DMUSD please contact the District Office at (858) 755-9301.
Flexible Option Areas
An Option Area is a designated area within the attendance boundaries of a specific school site. Families that reside in an Option Area will have the ‘option’ to attend one of two schools designated to their Option Area. Admittance to the schools is based on space available. A student enrolled in an ‘option area school’ will have resident status and may remain enrolled at the school through 6th grade. The District will make every attempt to place children in one of the two ‘option area schools’, however, if both schools are at capacity, a family may request their child be placed at any DMUSD school that has space available. The DMUSD School Locator will help you determine the area within which you live.
