Washington Elementary S.T.E.A.M. Magnet School


The Washington Elementary STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) Magnet School has been located in the center of Little Italy since 1914, making it one of the oldest schools in San Diego. The school is fondly remembered by the generations that have attended and has a special place in the hearts of everyone in the community.

The Little Italy neighborhood works to integrate the school into the community by volunteering, supporting fundraisers and having students participate in the many community events. Check out the kids’ performances at Little Italy’s Tree Lighting & Christmas Village and their chalk art at FESTA!

Additionally, the Little Italy Association supports the Washington Elementary School Foundation, which exists to enhance and expand the educational programs, greaten the number of resources available to the school and to build a strong, safe and integrated community around the students.
