Gillispie is a school where children can’t wait to arrive, never want to leave, and are eager to share their day’s adventures with families and friends. An independent, private school located in downtown La Jolla, Gillispie School enrolls students from Preschool through Grade 6. Our inspiring campus includes beautiful outdoor learning spaces, a fine arts center, science bungalow, sports field, sustainable garden, library, and gymnasium with a rock climbing wall.
Gillispie invites all members of the community to participate in the”Gillispie Gives Back” Food Drive to help the Jacobs and Cushman San Diego Food Bank. The School has set up a virtual shopping site on the San Diego Food Bank website where visitors can hand-select the specific items they want to purchase for the food bank or make monetary donations. 100% of contributions will go directly to the Food Bank.
These foundations are the pillars of our educational philosophy, and at Gillispie, we believe that learning is a journey in which children are active participants.
Our expertise in childhood education ages two through twelve creates learning foundations for life.
These are the years that make all the difference. We celebrate rather than rush childhood.
Our students construct their knowledge through relevant, project-based education.
Graduates enroll at top schools, have a love of learning, care for their community, are original thinkers, and exhibit kindness to others.
