San Carlos School District is a K-8 elementary school district in California. It consists of 2 middle schools, 4 lower elementary schools, 2 upper elementary schools (currently being built) and 1 K-8 charter school. It currently serves more than 3,500 students.[1] After graduating from 8th grade, students typically go on to the Sequoia Union High School District, and most often to Sequoia High School (Redwood City, California) or Carlmont High School.

Vision: The San Carlos School District shall provide an innovative and engaging learning experience that fosters the development of the Whole Child to ensure all students are well prepared for success in the 21st Century, as evidenced by:

  • Reaching their highest academic, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical potential;
  • Becoming problem solvers, critical thinkers, risk-takers, designers, collaborators, and innovators; and
  • Developing into contributing, empathic citizens and leaders who are responsible stewards of their world and care about equity and justice, both locally and worldwide.


Middle Schools (6-8) - currently 5-8 until Upper Elementary Schools are built

Lower Elementary Schools (K-3) -- currently K-4 until Upper Elementary Schools are built

Upper Elementary Schools (4-5) - currently being built

Charter Schools (K-8)

In addition, the school district runs a Transitional Kindergarten program and preschool program at many of its sites.

The school district is in the process of building two new 4th-5th grade schools, one located on each of the current middle school campuses. The existing middle schools would have grades 6-8 and the existing elementary schools will be for grades K-3.
