The Nativity School in Rancho Santa Fe to hold annual Open House/tours Jan. 25-29


On Monday, Jan. 25 through Friday, Jan. 29, The Nativity School in Rancho Santa Fe will host Open House tours for preschool-eighth grade families from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Parents and students will be able to meet the school’s principal, Margaret Heveron, the friendly and inviting teachers, and explore the beautiful campus and classrooms to see firsthand teachers and students in action. The Nativity School provides three key features to each family: Small class sizes, stimulating curriculum enhanced by specialists, and a dedicated Catholic community.

The Nativity School is dedicated to providing a challenging educational environment, as well as developing the moral judgment and decision making skills nurtured in the school’s Catholic values. The school’s philosophy of education, based on the Multiple Intelligences by Howard Gardner, is the foundation that cultivates the intellect of each student. This philosophy promotes the sound spiritual, social, emotional, and physical growth of its students.

The Nativity School uses Schoolwide Learning Expectations as a framework for establishing overall goals for student growth and achievement. The rich and challenging curriculum of the core subjects Religion, Language Arts, math, reading, science, and social studies, are enhanced with specialized curriculum in Spanish, technology, art, music, and physical education. Technology is available to all students in every classroom, and is infused into the curriculum to support and enhance the learning


The Nativity School opened its doors in September 1996 as an integral part of The Church of the Nativity. The addition of the school represented phase two of the master plan of the parish, and its commitment to serving the spiritual, academic, emotional and physical needs of Catholic families.
