Greetings Eagle Families! I want to update you on the second half of our year.  


We thank our 5th grade teacher, Ms. Belote, who resigned in January to start a new chapter in her life. To ensure that students receive a high quality education, our veteran teacher, Ms. Meza, our Coordinator of Dual Language and English Language Development, will now teach 5th grade. Ms. Meza will continue to bring her talents to our students!


We want to thank the YMCA program for delivering over 200 hours of physical play to students during a pilot program. As our teachers transition to now overseeing physical play for students, we found such success with YMCA that we will have them return in the future!


We are excited to continue growing enrollment. We ask that you remember to share with your family and friends our strong academic growth, as well as our wonderful programs in music, martial arts, dual language and athletics. I thank you for trusting in me as we lead students to exceed their potential.


Mrs. Lucille Ciudad Real, Interim Principal

Located in the classrooms on the property of Bayview Baptist Church, a secular model is implemented which sends over 80% of inner-city children on to college, Epiphany Prep opened in 2013 and currently has one K-8 track of 250 students with a possible maximum enrollment of 280-300.
It projects to open its second school in 2EPSD Classroom image016 in Escondido with two tracks of students in grades K–2 (possibly up to grade 3) with 180-240 students, adding a grade level each year until it reaches full enrollment of 540 by 2021-22.
Epiphany Prep’s core design principles include an 8-hour school day, a longer school year, a blended digital and face-to-face learning model, expanded Literacy and Math instructional periods, a 50/50 dual language program, Project-Based Learning, a full-time counselor, a virtues/values-based curriculum infused with classical Great Books and Jr. Great Books, a high school transition program and on-going support for graduates, and intervention, restorative and resiliency programs for students and families.
