Tucked away above a canyon and next to a park in the northwestern section of Rancho de Los Peñasquitos, Adobe Bluffs Elementary School (ABES) is a wonderful model of a neighborhood school and the pride and joy of the community. From the first moment after entering the bright red doors of this meticulously maintained campus; one immediately senses the caring, collaborative atmosphere that has become its trademark. Building on a strong tradition of volunteerism and business support, a culture has been firmly established by the school community to work tirelessly, side by side to maximize student academic and social growth.

Adobe Bluffs first opened its doors in 1992 and remained one of the smallest elementary schools in Poway Unified School District until 2002. Over the next few years the enrollment increased and by 2006 there were more than 800 students. In 2008, due to the opening of two new schools in our community, our enrollment decreased to 460. We have maintained our small size and in 2015 we are slightly smaller at around 362 students.

An important goal of the Adobe Bluffs community is to be a welcoming school for all students and families. We consider ourselves a small school with a big heart. By focusing on traits of character such as caring, respect, trustworthiness, responsibility, fairness and citizenship, our staff, students and parents have implemented strategies to support students academic, social and emotional achievement.
