Welcome to Park Dale Lane School!

A Community of Readers, Writers, and Artists with 21st Century Skills


The staff at Park Dale Lane Elementary School is dedicated to providing a safe and productive learning environment to ensure the academic success of each of our students.

Educational programs have been designed to provide the skills and tools necessary for students to explore their creativity while developing a strong academic foundation.

The dedication of Park Dale Lane’s staff, students, and parents has resulted in the school being selected as a 2016 California Gold Ribbon School, an Arts Exemplary School, a three time California Distinguished School and most recently a Classroom of the Future Award winner.

The Park Dale Lane school community is dedicated to having students develop into life-long learners and responsible members of society. The Park Dale Lane vision is to develop students who are confident, competent, compassionate, competitive, and creative. Our commitment is to provide a child-centered education of the highest quality. By utilizing the unique resources of home, school, and the community, we seek to ensure a nurturing learning environment that values diversity and is rigorous in academic standards. Our reputation as a high performing school with a nurturing environment is well-known and is a result of a dedicated professional staff and an involved, enthusiastic school community.
The high level of parent involvement at Park Dale Lane demonstrates that education is a priority within our school community. A large percentage of parents attend school functions on a regular basis. We have an active and supportive School Site Council, PTA, English Learner Advisory Committee and Encinitas Educational Foundation which provides support to many programs for students and families.

We look forward to working with your family and student this school year.
