Los Paseos Demographic
Los Paseos has served students in suburban South San Jose, part of the Morgan Hill Unified School District, since 1975. The student and staff population reflects Silicon Valley’s economic and ethnic diversity as well as social complexities. Los Paseos fosters an inclusive environment of supporting all students, including those with special learning and/or therapeutic needs. We offer classes for transitional kindergarten through 5th grade. Our campus climate facilitates awareness and acceptance, both of which help all students build character and community. Panther learners, of all ages, are challenged to display their personal best in pursuit of achieving academic excellence.  We serve approximately 500 students; 18.6% are English Learners, 1.0% Foster Youth, 0.6% Migrant, 12.6% Students with Disabilities, and 38.9% are Socioeconomically Disadvantaged.

Our vision is to build an inclusive and connected community through the enrichment of students, staff, and family. We build strong working relationships among families & teachers that support our students. Our 3 main areas of focus include: Academics, Hospitality, and Fundraising.
Home and School Club Governance
The role of the Home and School Club (HSC) is to build strong working relationships among families, teachers and schools, in support of students. ALL LP Families are on HSC. All families can make an impact via Panther Pledge, Volunteer 1-2 times per year, and participate in building a thriving and fun LP Community. HSC is governed by a Board who loves the school, teachers, and families! HSC Volunteers serve on one of the 3 committees: Academic, Hospitality, or Fundraising. All families are encouraged to attend HSC Meetings.

Please contact the Home & School Club for any questions or comments!

Fall Fundraiser:
Each year this fundraiser grosses approximately $20,000 for the school. It is one of our largest fundraisers. We ask each family to reach out to their network to purchase from a variety of catalog items such as magazines, wrapping paper and cookie dough to name a few. It launches in September and lasts through October.
