"Challenging Hearts and Minds"

Dr. Sherrill Knox, Principal

Welcome to Topa Topa Elementary School. We are a school that serves students from TK through 6th grade. Topa Topa Elementary School has been recognized as a California Distinguished School for our commitment to excellence exemplified by tremendous parent and community involvement and a peaceful, friendly, and safe campus environment.

Our school sits on a beautiful campus with a view of the Topa Topa Mountains , lending itself to a natural setting with our large garden in the center of campus and beautiful trees and flowers throughout. 

All teachers and staff at Topa Topa share the goal of providing a welcoming friendly environment to parents and the community. The school climate and campus safety are evident throughout the campus when visiting the school.

Topa Topa provides a place to grow for all its students and a wonderful setting for all to enjoy. The school climate is enhanced by an active PTA and community involvement that provides funding for materials, extra staff, enrichment, and special events for family entertainment and school spirit.  (click here for more)


Letter from the Board and administration addressing the safety of our students and, in particular, undocumented immigrant families.

Click to review the letters in both English and Spanish that were mailed on Friday, April 21, 2017 to secondary students' homes and placed in elementary students' backpacks.  The text was written in response to statements made about undocumented immigrants during the presidential campaign and soon after the election. About half of the school districts in the County have adopted such positions speaking directly to this issue.
