Welcome to Mar Vista Elementary!

Mar Vista Elementary School is the best! We're a neighborhood school and a School For Advanced Studies (SAS). Please read our Principal's Message and explore our website to learn more about our school.

SAS Program Update

LAUSD has changed the application process for entrance to a School for Advanced Studies (SAS) program for non-resident students. The SAS application is now a part of the CHOICES Unified Enrollment application process. In past years, applications were submitted directly to the school sites in spring, but this is no longer the practice.

Applications are due November 5, 2018 by 5:00pm. Please visit the SAS Page for more information.

The Big Boo


Join us on Thursday, October 18 at 6:30pm for our Haunted House meeting, and on Tuesday, October 23 at 8:30am for our Big Boo Committee meeting. Both meetings will take place in the Cafeteria.

Interested in volunteering?

The Big Boo is Mar Vista Elementary's frighteningly fun annual Halloween festival. We offer great games, finger-lickin' food, marvelous music, and even a hair-raising Haunted House! Every year, our volunteers show up and - from start to finish - put their best effort forward to make the event SPOOKtacularly fun and wildly successful.

WE NEED YOU! We have hundreds of volunteer spots we need to fill, from selling tickets before the event, to setting up on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, to running game booths, and of course, to clean up after the party's finished. Please visit http://signup.com/go/zPJyg1 to sign up for a spot (or two or three ...).

School Tours

Are you a prospective parent?
Please join us a for a tour of Mar Vista Elementary! Tours visit all Kindergarten classrooms and enrichment classes on campus. Each tour begins at 8:30AM and lasts for one hour. Following the tour, there is a Q&A session with the principal. TOURS ARE FOR ADULTS ONLY! Sign up below for an available date: https://goo.gl/forms/T0xtFasheHWf0h9M2
