About Our School

Canyon Vista Elementary School is nestled in the hilltop community of Aliso Viejo, adjacent to Soka University. With a breathtaking view of Wood Canyon and the hilltops of Laguna Beach, the school opened its doors in August of 2002.

As a walking school, all of the families live within the local community and walk in neighborhood groups to the beautiful, new school. The facility is comprised of thirty classrooms, a multi-purpose room, a TV studio and computer lab featuring the latest in state of the art technology including internet access in every classroom and an emphasis on multimedia and integration of technology into the curriculum. Featured software includes Accelerated Reader and Accelerated Math programs to individualize the reading and math curriculum for students.

In partnership with Soka University, Soka students volunteer to assist teachers in classrooms. Canyon Vista serves as a professional development site for California State University Fullerton. Staff members serve as mentors and trainers for teacher trainees.
