We moved to Solana Beach in July 2013 and had previously been at Solana Highlands . I can't say enough about this school , my son wasn't ever made to feel like the NEW kid he was welcomed with open arms and immediately given the extra help he needed . His Teacher Mrs . Strickland is the most enthusiastic , positive , and encouraging he has EVER had !! The Principle Mrs Platt is excellent , has a great repoire with parents , students and staff . I love all the parent involvement and friendly community feel . We are moving to the EAST coast and I am so happy to have had such a surprisingly GREAT year at Solana Vista !!
