graphicFor over a century, South Pasadena’s public schools have enjoyed a stellar reputation. Families move to South Pasadena to take advantage of a renowned teaching staff, small class sizes in kindergarten through third grade, and an emphasis on standards in the curriculum at every grade level.

Students benefit from the environment of the South Pasadena public schools and the close community that develops when students remain together for their elementary and high school career.

The district is nearing completion of a $20 million modernization of the art deco-style South Pasadena High School campus, and is also putting the finishing touches on similar modernization efforts at its three elementary schools. Both district and standardized test scores rank South Pasadena schools among the 10 ten percent in the state.

The community provides support for the educational system, public and private, in many ways. South Pasadena’s children grow up in an environment where education is top priority.
