Principal's Message

Vanessa Zuniga

Dear Rancho Santa Fe Families, Community, and New and Prospective Students and Parents,

We would like to welcome each of you to Rancho Santa Fe Elementary! It is our privilege to serve our students and families with quality and excellence.

As an educational leader, my vision of excellence in education is to create a school that will inspire and prepare students to lead and excel in solving the challenges of tomorrow’s world. Instruction, engagement, achievement and innovation are emphasized. Students and teachers are engaged in work that is rigorous, meaningful and provides for authentic and diverse experiences. A collaborative environment is encouraged that develops innovations in learning.

Teachers are provided professional growth opportunities to continue their own life-long learning and develop strong teacher leadership.

Learning environments are built around positive relationships and supports social responsibility. The school culture is such that every student, parent and staff member knows that they are a valued, respected member of the school community.

Parents, community members, staff and students all work towards collective efficacy; the belief that only together can we accomplish our goals. Every student is challenged and guided toward success in school and in life, creating the leaders of tomorrow.

If you would like to schedule a school tour or have additional questions, please call 623-535-6500.

I look forward to meeting each of you and your child(ren) over the coming year.


Principal, Rancho Santa Fe
