We are a small and close-knit school nestled into a quiet neighborhood in the heart of Serra Mesa and Mission Village area, overlooking the SDCCU Stadium. Many families choose our school for its excellent programs, our highly trained staff, including bilingual administrative and support staff, and our location handy to workplaces in Mission Valley and Kearny Mesa.


All students will participate in our 90/10 Dual Language Program to become bilingual, bi-literate, and multicultural learners. Students will not be allowed to enter the program after December of first grade unless they are newcomers to the country or transfer from a Spanish Immersion School and can pass a Spanish assessment. No exceptions will be made. To ensure the best possible academic outcomes for all students, parents are urged to commit to sustained enrollment in the program from K-5th grade.  Families who move out of the area and/or the district may apply for Choice to remain and receive a priority for acceptance to another District school. Juarez does not offer an English-only strand available for those not interested in Spanish Immersion.


Our small size gives Juarez a comfortable feel that helps students and our parent community feel welcome and valued. Our students' families are very involved in their children's education, helping staff, and bringing special programs and events that supplement learning. 

The mission of Juarez is to nurture an inclusive and equitable environment where diversity is celebrated, understood and acknowledged. Each individual child will continuously develop to their full potential, becoming biliterate and bilingual and reaching high academic achievement in both languages. Acting with integrity, students will become productive and socially just citizens of the world. 


Our vision is that each student will become a critical thinker while they evolve into their authentic self build the cognitive and linguistic assets of multilingualism, and will approach learning with cultural humility. Students will promote equity and equality to support underrepresented groups. Students will become culturally competent global-minded citizens: agents of change who value diversity and develop skill sets to improve the world around them.
