Welcome to Malibu Elementary School

  • MES Principal Christopher Hertz

    Malibu Elementary School is a K-5 public school and part of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. We are located near the beautiful Point Dume Bluffs on the northwest corner of Santa Monica Bay. Here you will find the best air quality and beaches in Los Angeles County. We were founded in July of 2019 by merging the former Juan Cabrillo Elementary and Point Dume Marine Science School. We have brought the best traditions and practices of both schools together, including programs that build a sense of belonging, programs that help students become more analytical, and thematic instruction that focuses on Marine Stewardship.

    At Malibu Elementary School, each child is seen, valued, and challenged in our welcoming, safe, and inclusive community. Our experienced and talented teachers and support staff are committed to and passionate about helping children achieve success! Malibu Elementary is dedicated to the philosophy that families play an integral role in each child's achievement. Parents and other family members are encouraged to volunteer at school or at one of the many activities organized by our parents' organization.

    We thank our families for entrusting their children's education to us! Together, we will help our students continue to become self-confident, kind, environmentally aware, and successful individuals!
