About Kate Sessions School
Kate Sessions is a small neighborhood school serving northern Pacific Beach. Our learning community is a blend of local students, students who live in military housing, those who attend through enrollment options and Special Education students who choose our school because of its programs.
Our vision is to become a world-class school where we create learning experiences that foster student inquiry by promoting critical thinking, problem-solving and developing moral integrity to support decision making and actions based upon honesty, fairness, justice and respect.
We are becoming an authorized World School via the IB Program. Our instructional program is an inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning. The state standards are the foundation of our curriculum. Teachers incorporate a global perspective, along with a real world application of concepts and skills.
Our Parent-Teacher Organization supports our academic program by funding a vocal music teacher, art teacher and a librarian. We offer Spanish language instruction for all grades kidnergarten through 5th grade and computer literacy classes for grades 3-5. Our GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) programs are infused with International Baccalaureate elements that bring the real world into the classroom.
The Kate Sessions school community works together to provide our students with a challenging and engaging learning environment that supports purposeful inquiry and builds positive attitudes towards learning. We are working to increase our API (Academic Performance Index state standardized tests) into the high 800s, among the highest in the region. To reach that goal, our PTO funds a tutoring program to provide small group instruction after school.
