Since the school’s inception in 1971, PS1 has carefully grown into a robust and vibrant campus in the heart of Santa Monica. The campus resides on 1.2 acres which includes approximately 30,500 sq. ft. of buildings and two expansive play yards (one of which is home to the oldest coastal live oak tree in Santa Monica!).
Joy in discovery and emphasis on sustainability and community is supported by our award-winning architecture and light-filled campus. Bright, spacious classrooms designed to bring learning to life feature their own outdoor areas, shared workrooms and easy flow to library, art, P.E., music, and The STEAM Studio. PS1’s play areas are some of the most innovative elementary school playgrounds in Southern California. From the ground up, PS1 encourages exploration and interaction.
