Mount Everest Academy is a public (not charter!) independent study school and is a part of San Diego Unified School District. We are located in the Clairemont area of San Diego. We are a small school, and have about 150 total high school students. Our program is very unique, and we offer ͞Flexibility to Pursue Your Passion!͟
Our local community is located about 5 miles from the Pacific Ocean. We are a coastal community, and our local biome is comprised of chaparral and canyons. Our local canyons are so extensive, that even in the most populated areas of San Diego, we still have wildlife and native plants living within our canyon system.
