Enrollment Logistics

Current class locations include South Carlsbad lagoons, South Carlsbad beaches, San Dieguito Park and Cardiff Beach. Other locations may include Carlsbad trails, Olivenhain trails, Encinitas State Beaches, San Elijo trails and Vista parks. As an outdoor forest school, The Native School is not location specific as we operate from multiple nature classrooms each year. However, we do utilize several primary class locations. 

Fall 2021 open enrollment has closed and our Fall 2021 class roster is fully committed. However, we encourage families to proceed through our enrollment process to be placed on our active wait list. The first step in our enrollment process includes submission of a New Student Application, linked below. Once we receive your application, we'll advise of our next zoom parent info session. Attendance of a parent info session is required to ensure we're a mutual fit for your family.  If there are no spaces at the time you go through the enrollment process, you will be added to our wait list. Openings do come up sporadically throughout the year, so being placed on our wait list is your best chance at a spot for your student!
