Principal's Message


Welcome from Mr. Bjorn PaigeTop of Page

The San Dieguito High School Academy Family,

I’m very happy to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. SDA is a special place, and this year promises to add new and inspiring stories to the 80 year history of our amazing school. I’m so pleased that you are part of our San Dieguito Family.


SDA has always been a place of rich traditions, creativity, kindness, and caring community, and as we prepare to welcome students back from summer, we look forward to adding our own voices to that special spirit and unique high school experience. This year students and families will have opportunities to get connected and I encourage you to be involved, attend events, and know that this school is yours.


As you step on campus this fall you’ll notice that we’re still in the midst of major construction. The centerpiece of this work, funded by Proposition AA, is a state of the art science and math building in the heart of campus. The building is proceeding on schedule, and over the summer the steel skeleton of the two story structure has been fleshed out with walls, stairs, and more. In addition, crews have been hard at work on a bioretention basin just west of the new construction, and as a result you’ll see that fencing has expanded west, and will remain so until our winter break. The results of this work, the new labs and classrooms opening in the fall of 2017, will be well worth the effort, and we’ll keep you up to date on progress throughout the year.


But San Dieguito is not simply the reality of its campus; the true spirit of SDA comes from the people who form our school community, students, teachers, and families. I’m so happy that you are a part of this family too, and I’m looking forward to a great year ahead.


I’ll continue to update this page, and along the way do my best to share a bit of what’s happening at San Dieguito H.S. Academy, and other odds and ends via Twitter @BjornPaige and blogging at: http://bjornpaige.wordpress.com/.
