LdV Enrollment Process for Prospective 2022-2023 Families

School Mission: Leonardo da Vinci K-8 School is a community dedicated to the development of the whole child as a literate, curious, and inventive person, responsible for preserving and creating beauty in cultural and natural environments.  LdV fosters this Renaissance child of the Arts and Sciences model through Integrated Thematic Instruction.

Due to the current global health pandemic caused by COVID-19, all our classes and parent meetings are being conducted via distance learning and zoom online conferencing. 

School History: Leonardo da Vinci School (LdV) was established in 1989 as a kindergarten through 8th grade school site and today there are now 886 students enrolled.  The student makeup includes one early kindergarten class, four classes at each grade level from kindergarten to third grade, three classes for each grade level from fourth to sixth grade, and 156 middle school students. Students in middle school grades 7 and 8 rotate to six different classes and are taught by teachers who hold single subject credentials and experience teaching high school.  Students are taught through board-adopted texts, thematic instruction (Highly Effective Teaching formerly called Integrated Thematic Instruction), and mastery projects (long term, in-depth projects supported by written report and oral presentation). In addition, LdV incorporates the following into thematic units used at every grade level: 8-10 learning field trips, large end-of-unit projects, research projects, oral presentations, science instruction, social science curriculum that connects to the English Language Arts Program, and math that covers the four common core domains. We are dedicated to educating the whole child through Integrated Thematic Instruction.

Enrollment: At this time, every class in the school is full and we have a waiting list. If you are interested in filling out a waitlist for the 2021-2022 school year, please email donna-roots@scusd.edu. 

We are an Open Enrollment/Waiting List School.

In order to join our community and sign up on the waiting list or sign up for the lottery, parents must attend one of our Zoom presentations and tours, 9:15-11:15 AM on Nov. 19, Dec. 3, Dec. 17, Jan. 21, and February 4. 

At the end of the presentation, interested families of children in each grade except K and 4th will be offered a Waiting List Form. This will be a google document. For parents of children entering kindergarten or 4th grade for 2022-2023, they will need to fill out a district open enrollment lottery form. The district open enrollment forms will be available February 2022. For LdV current Early Kindergarten students- the students will move into kindergarten. For LdV siblings, they need to complete the Open Enrollment Lottery form for kindergarten or 4th grade. All other grades, even for siblings, have a waitlist form. We will discuss the enrollment, lottery, and waiting list process at the presentation (zoom presentation).  


Zoom etiquette: Type your first and last name on screen, video screens on (off for personal care), and microphone off until speaking. Thank you!
