Principal’s Welcome Back To School Letter

Welcome to the Robert Down School Family!

Robert Down Elementary School, founded in 1891, is located in the heart of Pacific Grove, California and beautifully surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and Monterey Bay. The K-5 program focuses on a standards-aligned curriculum. We are a “Community of Caring” school with attention to the development of each individual’s character, as well as, the sense of community among all students.

The Mission of Robert Down Elementary School, in partnership with home and community, is to challenge every student to learn the skills, acquire the knowledge, and develop the insight and character that is necessary for a productive and rewarding life through a quality instructional program, a positive, stimulating environment with a clear commitment to the worth of every individual.

At Robert Down School, the staff, students, parents, and community are committed to providing an excellent learning program for all students. As a team, we work together to achieve this goal each and every day.
