Welcome to Ellen Browning Scripps Elementary School, a San Diego premier 21st-century schoolhouse! Our school opened September 4, 2001, with approximately 325 students in kindergarten through grade 4. We moved to our beautiful new campus in fall 2008.
At E.B. Scripps, our students and staff perform well above district and state averages on standardized tests each year. In fact, our base Academic Performance Index (API) score far exceeds the interim statewide performance target of 800.
In our school community, all stakeholders are teachers and learners. Each learner is encouraged to achieve academic and social success, enjoy learning, celebrate diversity, develop analytical skills and model exemplary behavior. We empower our learners to be responsible for their own inquiry. Our learners are active participants in their academic development, and every individual has a responsibility not just to perform a task, but to do it to the best of their ability.
We are committed to character building and embrace character education as an integral part of our curriculum. To excel, learners require an environment that encourages them to take risks. All members of the E.B. Scripps school community work together to create a nurturing environment so that learners can take risks, think critically, and ask questions about their world without anxiety.
Do take advantage of all that is happening at our school, and please don’t hesitate to immerse yourself in the Ellen Browning Scripps Penguin Spirit!
For our children,
Mr. Greg Collamer
