Our goal is to promote and support excellence in education in all La Jolla public schools. The LJCA works collaboratively to meet the needs of our diverse student population in grades TK-12 by implementing community based school reform in collaboration with SDUSD. Cluster board meetings are held every month and are open to all stakeholders.
