"The minute you step onto the Torrey Pines campus, you realize that this is not just a place for children, but a place for families." Read more>>   


Dear TPES Families,
Our 2017-2018 school year has started out with great success! You will be receiving three updates from our specialty teachers about all the wonderful instruction that is occurring each week. Please take the time to read through each specialty and discuss with your child what they are learning. We have amazing specialties that are unique to Torrey Pines and are a
large part of your child’s education. Another way to help your child’s educational experience is staying informed. I realize that we send parents a lot of information about what is happening at school. Please take the time to read, discuss and participate as much as you can. Your child’s elementary school experience goes by quickly; make sure you are involved with your child along the way!!
With warm regards,
Principal Ott
