Chula Vista Elementary School District Celebrates 130 Years


CVESD Celebrates 130 Years as a School District

One hundred and thirty years ago, the Chula Vista Elementary School District opened its doors to eager students ready to embark on an educational journey. Back then, with the start of a new century looming, the possibilities of what to come were foremost in the minds of students, staff, and the community. Quality public education was still a relatively new concept at the time, but the intention of preparing students for emerging opportunities informed teaching and learning. The district continues to live out that mission today and build upon a legacy of academic excellence.

As the district celebrates 130 years as a school district this year, they honor the past and look forward to the future. With the district’s high-quality instruction, technology-based curriculum, innovative programming, and strong visual and performing arts, they provide a highly sought-after education for all students. While they mark this milestone in their history, they also have definitive, and defining, plans for their future. This year the district’s focus is on teaching and learning with a vision of purpose. The success of all their students is the district’s top priority.

On October 20, 2022, the Chula Vista Elementary School District will host a 130th-anniversary celebration event at Hedenkamp Elementary School for all community members to attend. The free event will take place from 5 pm to 7 pm and will celebrate the district’s students, programs, and staff who have impacted the district over the years. The district looks forward to celebrating with all community members this milestone of their history.
