About Us

The Solana Beach Schools Foundation is a volunteer parent-led, non-profit organization that raises money to help bridge the gap between the state-funded curriculum and the educational needs we have for all students. The SBSF helps fund supplies, technology, and salaries for our award-winning Discovery Lab classes which provide a well-rounded, best-in-class education for our children.
