Future School Sites

The growth of Pacific Highlands Ranch will bring more families – and students – to area school districts. To accommodate this growth and provide students with school options near their homes, two potential additional elementary school sites have been identified within the community. Future schools at these locations will be within the Del Mar Union and Solana Beach school districts and development will proceed as necessitated by population growth.

Libraries

Pacific Highlands Ranch includes plans for an 18,000-square-foot public library, to be located in the Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch and to serve as the local branch of the San Diego Public Library. Due to expedited construction of the community, development plans for the library have been moved forward from 2029 to 2018. Design is expected to get underway this year.

Opportunities for community input into the library design process will be posted here when available.

Until the opening of the Pacific Highlands Ranch branch library, residents are encouraged to use the Carmel Valley Library located nearby.
