About Us


Alice Birney Elementary, located in University Heights, is one of the oldest urban schools in the District. We have been an authorized International Baccalaureate World School Primary Years Programme (IB PYP) since 2009-2010 school year. Our school has a diverse population including many students whose families speak a wide-variety of languages. Our supportive, student-centered instructional environment reflects the most current teaching practices to ensure that every child grows to their potential. Students are expected to become active, compassionate, inquisitive learners. 

We acknowledge that our school site sits on Native Indigenous Kumeyaay Tribal LandsWe are grateful for the place and space that we have cultivated and the bountiful nourishment we receive and share with our community.  We aim to be thoughtful stewards of the land on which we play, learn, teach, and grow.
