We pride ourselves on the fact that our modest campus and unpretentious social environment are the setting for an extraordinary academic experience, built around world-class academics, personal focus, and a family-like atmosphere.
How do we do it?
- an incredible, truly diverse group of students and families
- a faculty that cares, that pays attention to every individual, and knows how to teach at the highest levels
- very small classes, with an average of 13 students each
- strong leadership and administrative support
- a focus on community values
- a spirit of fun
With outstanding music and arts programs, an extensive, winning sports program, and the personal attention that makes an ambitious academic program work for a truly diverse student body, Pacific Hills is an extraordinary place - and we'd love for you to come see it for yourself.

PARTNERS WITH THE GRAMMY FOUNDATION
Pacific Hills School is a partner school with the Grammy Foundation and Museum. Collaboration includes Pacific Hills student performances at Grammy museum events, fundraisers and other museum offerings.
Students also take part in ongoing educational programming, including the Mike Curb Mentoring Program, pairing students with musicians, music executives and other industry professionals, helping them “establish relationships, increase self-esteem, develop leadership skills and grow their passion for music while offering them support long after they graduate the program.” Other opportunities include music production workshops and summer session programming.
INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM
All of our eighth- through twelfth-grade students now bring iPads, tablets, netbooks or laptops, and use them for in-school and at-home learning, breaking down the barriers between school and the unlimited learning resources online.
We continue to fine-tune this exciting technology enhancement, mapping out new ways to explore the world from our desktops and classrooms.
