Sunny weather all year round

San Diego has a little something for everyone. Boasting a glorious coastal setting with fun-loving locals, you can go for a swim at the beach, soak up the sun in one of the many green parks or go shopping in the many retail strips. 

You can toast marshmallows over a bonfire on La Jolla Shores, take a boat out to sea to watch whales and dolphins, or visit the famous San Diego Zoo. Students can also go for a hike along the trails of Mission Trails Regional Park or, if you’re more into sports, watch a baseball game at nearby Petco Park.

Our English school is well-located in the heart of the historic Gaslamp District, right in the middle of San Diego.
