Welcome to Malibu Elementary School

  • MES Principal Christopher Hertz Welcome to Malibu Elementary. Malibu Elementary is a K-5 public school in Malibu California. We are located near the beautiful Point Dume Bluffs on the northwest corner of the Santa Monica Bay. Here you will find the best air quality and beaches in Los Angeles County. We are part of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District. We were founded in July of 2019 by merging 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 help students become more analytical, and thematic instruction that focuses on Marine Stewardship. Our mascot is the Sea Lion and our colors are blue and green.

    Malibu Elementary is a school where each child is known, valued, challenged, and successful. We are a welcoming, safe, and inclusive community. 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 parent organization. Our dedicated and talented teachers and support staff are experienced and enthusiastic about helping children grow and achieve success. We thank our families for entrusting their children’s education to us! Together with our families we will help our students feel and be successful!

    Our website was designed to support students, staff, and parents. Please use this website to access staff email, voicemail numbers, and weekly Parent Newsletters from the Principal. Parent Newsletters have current information and events. Enjoy exploring the website and thanks for staying connected to Malibu Elementary.

    Together for MES,

    Christopher Hertz, Principal
