Since 2001 Element Education, Inc. has been a leader in innovative ways to approach education. Element Education, Inc. is a non-profit corporation which oversees two publicly funded charter schools. The Mission of its schools and programs shall be to inspire each child’s natural desire to learn by offering choice, flexibility, and learning standards based on learning styles and the developmental stages of the learner. This is accomplished through the use of research-based learning styles programs and in partnership with parents and community resources. Learners will be knowledgeable and skilled (mastery), self-directed (autonomy), and engaged in meaningful learning (purpose) in their educational journey to adulthood. With 1300 students throughout San Diego, Riverside, and Orange Counties, Element Education is home to Dehesa Charter School, with its personalized learning styles model, and Community Montessori Charter School, which implements Montessori Style principals.
