Garden Road School is tucked away amid rock-strewn foothills in the southeast corner of the suburban community of Poway, California. Constructed in 1961, Garden Road serves about 480 students from transitional kindergarten through fifth grade. Our school also provides a preschool experience for approximately 50 three and four year olds in both a traditional fee-based preschool and a free state funded program for low-income families. We offer a two year transitional kindergarten program which meets the needs of some of our youngest students. Our kindergarten students attend a full school day, allowing for additional academic instructional time.
Garden Road serves as home to 35 Special Day Class students in three classes. Our Special Day Class structure parallels the regular education strand of service from preschool through fifth grade in the Autism Spectrum Disorder classes. Many of the Special Education students are mainstreamed into the regular education classes and programs. This provides a valuable learning experience for all students. Our Extended Student Services program provides before and after school care, academic assistance and enrichment for approximately 100 students.
