PDMSS is a school where the children come first. The principal, staff and teachers are amazing and dedicated to bringing out the best in each child. Parent involvement is outstanding.

My children very much enjoyed their time at Pt. Dume. The teachers and staff were always willing to work with us if there ever was a problem. There are also plenty of opportunities to be actively involved in your child's education.

Point Dume Elementary School
Santa Monica-malibu Unified School District
* In 2011-2012 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
