About Rancho Canada

Rancho Canada Elementary School is located in the city of Lake Forest, educating students from kindergarten through 6th grade. The school opened its doors in 1976. Their "Mission" as a school community is to provide a multifaceted learning experience to their students in a stimulating, caring, educational environment, marked by a focus on technology and continuing innovation in instructional techniques.

Competency, moving toward excellence in basic academic skills, as well as responsibility and respect for others, are their standards. Special effort is made to recognize and nurture the diversity of talents and interests of the student community. Teachers and parents, in partnership, give sensitive responsive guidance to students, while maintaining close communication and cooperation between home and school. Meeting the needs of the total child, intellectual, social, and emotional is our goal.


Rancho Canada’s vision for its students is to strive to become independent thinkers, resourceful problem-solvers, and confident citizens in tomorrow's world.
