About Our School


A California Distinguished School

Toler Elementary School has a long standing tradition of excellence in education; in fact, our school is named after San Diego’s first school teacher, William P. Toler! We are proud that Toler fosters a strong sense of belonging for all students. The Toler Learning Community works in concert to ensure that all students reach their highest potential. Innovative curriculum, critical thinking, creativity and collaboration are hallmarks of the many cutting edge programs at Toler. Literacy skills are embedded into every aspect of learning. Our highly skilled and dedicated staff, engaged, involved parent community and active volunteers enrich the learning environment. Our counselor works in tandem with classroom teachers to provide opportunities for students to cultivate their social-emotional well-being and sense of connectedness. Our STEAM Program integrates real world learning into core standards. Toler's small school, family atmosphere provides for a sense of a "home away from home" feel. This, coupled with Toler's long standing tradition of excellence, outstanding student achievement and unique mid-century campus makes for an extraordinary elementary school experience. Toler's mission in action to prepare students to be literate, dynamic thinkers who are respectful leaders ready to soar in an ever-evolving world is a sight to behold each and every school day!
