District representatives pose with shovels

On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, students and Chula Vista Elementary School District representatives grabbed shovels to pose in front of a makeshift dirt mound as part of the district’s groundbreaking celebration. The event marked the start of the district’s 50th school.

“The Chula Vista Elementary School District has served the Chula Vista community for 130 years and counting,” said Dr. Eduardo Reyes, Superintendent of Chula Vista Elementary School District. “This new school underscores our commitment and dedication to our community for the years to come.”

The new elementary school will be located at 1789 Santa Carolina Ave in Chula Vista and consists of an 85,000-square-foot administration and classroom building and a separate 5,600-square-foot food service building. The new school will have 26 classrooms, six kindergarten classrooms, an innovation center, virtual reality lab, a multipurpose room with a stage, solar panels, and 65,000 square feet of artificial turf field and track. The cost of the construction is estimated at $66 million. Construction is anticipated to be completed in June 2024. Funding for the project is made available through Community Facilities District Mello Roos Funds and other capital funds.

“I am honored to be a part of the district’s newest school,” said Lucy Ugarte, Board of Education President for Chula Vista Elementary School District. “The district is committed to building upon the 21st century, high-quality education for all our students, and I am proud to be a part of its continued growth.”
