Principal's Message

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 16 credentialed teachers serve approximately 400 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: extended day learning (tutoring, robotics, engineering, computer programming), before and after school care, student council, peer mediation, outdoor school, and on-site counseling.

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 PTA parent group who raise funds to support students and staff. Our families also plan a range of events including: carnival, walkathon, family picnics, school assemblies, sweetheart dance, variety show, movie nights, and educational assemblies.

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.

Meet Our Principal, Mrs. Jessica Miller
