Welcome to Capri

Welcome to CAPRI!

Capri Elementary School has served the community of Leucadia in north coastal San Diego County since opening in 1969.  Our families describe our K-6 school of almost 700 students as a “hidden jewel overlooking the Pacific."

Capri’s students are culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse.  Capitalizing on our diverse cultural resources, Capri has developed an exemplary Dual Language Immersion Spanish program, serving students from throughout the district. The Dual Language Immersion Program is a challenging and rigorous academic program in which Spanish is used as the primary language of instruction. The program implements a 90/10-immersion model in which K-1 students receive 90% of their instruction in Spanish and 10% in English. Each year after first grade, the percentage of time instructed in English in core subjects increases by 10% annually, until 4th -6th grade, which is 50/50.  The goals of the program are: academic excellence, fluency and literacy in both languages, and cross-cultural understanding.

Thanks to our PTA and Encinitas Education Foundation, we engage yoga, science, art, and PE consultants who further enrich our students’ experience at Capri.  Capri’s talented teachers are highly educated, intelligent, caring, and collaborative. Capri’s students are sensitive, curious, imaginative, and hard-working.  Together, we share our beautiful campus, pursuing our vision of exceptional learning for every child.
