Pacific Beach

Middle School

An International Baccalaureate World School

Our Campus and Facilities


Our campus began as 10 acres in whatwas then wilderness during the Great Depression. It grew as the beachcommunities matured. With the post-World War II growth boom in San Diego theschool had grown so much it swapped places with the elementary school in 1950to its present location. The current larger campus covers 13.5acres. 


Over the years, we have expanded to add our two-storyPB Middle Library, multi-use media center, Counseling Center, renovated ScienceLab and Design Classrooms, and technology with one-to-one computing capacitythroughout the school. Also part of the expansion is a comprehensivePhysical and Health Education Department with fields, courts, and a dance andfitness room. Stay tuned...We are the future site of the new beach area YMCA. 


Located one mile north of SeaWorld and one mile east of thePacific Ocean, our school features mature landscaping and beautifulmurals and tile work that make it an attractive and welcoming to studentsand our community.
