Stonegate Elementary School, an exceptional neighborhood school in Southern California's Irvine Unified School District, develops 21st century learners who embrace academic rigor, intellectual risk-taking, and social responsibility. Bolstered by our continuous improvement efforts, our students are deeply engaged in meaningful, real-world learning experiences that foster their ability to think critically, communicate effectively, work collaboratively, and solve problems creatively.

The Stonegate experience extends well beyond academics. Focused on the success of the whole child, we provide multi-tiered levels of instruction and support that attend to the mental health and social-emotional well-being of our entire school community.

Through collaboration among dedicated teachers, parents, and community members, students are empowered to take active ownership of their learning processes. At Stonegate, we believe our students will become contributing members of society, equipped with the skills, knowledge, and values necessary to meet the challenges of college, career, and life.
