Welcome to Sinsheimer Elementary School

Our Mission Statement

The Sinsheimer School community is committed to a safe learning environment with a standards-based instructional program where there are high expectations, caring relationships and meaningful opportunities to participate and contribute to our diverse community.


   On behalf of the community at Sinsheimer Elementary, I would like to welcome you to our school!  Sinsheimer has a long tradition of success and is among the highest achieving elementary schools in the county.

  Sinsheimer is a neighborhood school located near the intersection of Johnson Avenue and Laurel Lane in San Luis Obispo, California. Our 14 credentialed teachers serve approximately 370 students in kindergarten through sixth grades.

We strive to make sure every student is successful by providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum of study nurtured through positive relationships.  Our wonderful staff and parents are here to further these goals.  After all, the needs of each student are best served when we work together.  

We have a wide range of programs and activities to meet the needs and interests of our students.  Some of the opportunities include:  Before and after school care, student council, Project Wisdom, homework club, science camp, on site counseling, and Big Brothers Big Sisters Program.

We pride ourselves in fostering a safe and positive school environment. We teach character and have high expectations for students to do their best and be kind and thoughtful citizens.

 We have an active parent group who raise funds to support students and staff.  Our PTA also plans a range of events including:  Carnival, Walkathon, family picnics, school assemblies, Father-Daughter Dance, Variety Show, movie night-potluck, and educational field trips .

We look forward to working with you and hope that reviewing our webpage will provide some insight into the life of a “Stinger” at Sinsheimer Elementary. Please contact us at (805) 596-4088 for additional information.

School Safety Message


With recent school violence in the news, Sinsheimer has responded by alerting school staff about the incident, by reviewing emergency response procedures, by communicating with local law enforcement, and by notifying parents of our plan to handle communication with students.  This unfortunate event has reinforced the need to assess the safety measures that are currently in place.  Some of those measures include:

* Monthly emergency drills including a lockdown drill

* Maps and plans available to police, first-responders, and district administrators

* Procedures to check in visitors to school campuses

* Reinforcing a positive school climate for all stakeholders

What the Students Say!

"I like that I feel like we are one big family.  So the school is like my extended family"

"I like how the school makes learning fun!"
