About Euclid School
Welcome to Euclid, an exciting and diverse school with a proud heritage. We've been the heart of East San Diego for nearly a century!
Today's Euclid is a learning community where everyone takes responsibility for student achievement, academic proficiency, social awareness and emotional stability. We work together to ensure that our students become successful leaders and lifelong learners.
Our students come from families with economic struggles, many of them new immigrants to America. The majority are still working on their English language fluency. At school they have the advantage of a dedicated staff and faculty that has developed new strategies to address problems with student achievement. And those strategies are working. Achievement is rising, and our school was recently profiled in the media for its success.
We take the concept of learning community literally. Our parents, volunteers and supporters get involved with our students in activities and learning. Hundreds of kids and grownups alike pour in for our carnivals at Halloween and in the spring. They come to applaud our students during the annual Bike Rodeo. Our streets in City Heights are alive with fresh and eager faces on the annual Walk to School Day that builds awareness with the community at large as well as with our parents and students. We are all reminded that the simple act of walking a child to school can have profound benefits to a child, and that a little extra time with them each morning in a healthy, safe and environmentally friendly way is good for everyone.
With the help of our community we have activities that help our children flourish including scouting programs and the Science Olympiad, to nurture interest in science and technology for students.
Each Thursday we offer our community fresh produce through the Feed America program. We also host a food bank regularly where we dispense healthy food and nutritional information.
Our learning community is incredibly mixed, including Burmese, Indochinese, Korean, Chinese, Somali, Ethiopian, and Mexican and Central American families.
And every morning, all of these children start their learning day gathering around the flagpole and pledge allegiance to the American flag, for many of them, the symbol of their new homeland. We welcome you to come see Euclid in action.
