    About Us

    Sonora School is the hidden gem in the Mesa del Mar community of Costa Mesa. Sonora is a “No Excuses University School,” promoting college readiness for all students. We believe that ALL students deserve the right to an education that prepares them for college and the work place. The school's mission of creating a school that accepts no limits to the academic success of ALL students serves as the guidepost for everything that the school does. We promote high expectations and “no excuses” at Sonora School!

    We continue to add college symbolism around our campus to promote college readiness and college bound thinking. We are committed to continually improving our six exceptional systems and in preparing all students for college and the work place.  

    Sonora Elementary School was named a California Distinguished School in 2002, 2008 and 2017. We also received recognition as a Title I Achieving School in 2008 and 2016. These are two prestigious awards that recognize our school's excellence. Sonora also received the California Gold Ribbon Award and the Exemplary Arts Award in 2016.

    The students at Sonora Elementary School consistently acquire the knowledge, skills, habits, and attributes needed to be successful in middle school, high school, college, and the work place.
