Overview
  • About Junipero Serra Elementary School

    Junipero Serra Elementary School is a hidden gem in the heart of the Bernal Heights area. It is a neighborhood public school with a very diverse student population, located opposite the beautiful Bernal Heights public park and near the local library. Our mission is to provide all students with a well-rounded education necessary for success in life. Students are supported as they develop a sense of pride in their cultural heritage and achievements. Our goal is for students to be responsible, self-motivated, life-long learners.

    A strong caring school community works together towards the academic success of all students. This is realized through our Caring Schools Community meetings where students have a voice in problem-solving, social issues, or issues important to them. Parents and students communicate through home-side activities, and buddies create a sense of school community. Our teachers collaborate with each other and offer extra help to provide the best education for our students.
