The teachers at Del Mar are highly qualified, committed, and caring. The community of families is quite diverse, and this is one reason we chose to send our child to Del Mar.

Del Mar Elementary is a great school with caring staff and excellent teachers. It will never have a "high" score on sites like this simply due to the demographics of the school and district, but if you live in Live Oak/Pleasure Point and know anything about the community you live in, you will understand ...  Read more

My daughter attended Del Mar and I am so sad that she has to move on to middle school. Del Mar was such a wonderful school with marvelous teachers and support staff that were so caring and so kind to everyone. We are going to miss Del Mar!

Although the Staff is good the audience is low class with consequent low standards. I might sound snob but I am not. I just care a lot for my children's moral values, their friendships, their manners, their environment, since they have to spend so many hours in school. I found it inappropriate for them.
