     Kimberly School’s song, a part of our school for 20 years, reads as follows: Kimberly School, Kimberly School. We are proud to be a part of Kimberly School. Students and teachers learning and sharing, not afraid of working and not afraid of caring. Friendship and fair play, that’s our way, growing together day by day. We are proud to be a part of Kimberly School!  These words mean as much today as they did when they were written. These words exemplify our plan of action and our belief in everything we do. 

     Kimberly School is located in the Redlands Unified School District (RUSD), approximately halfway between Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Our school celebrated 50 years of excellence during the 2007-2008 school year. We are thrilled to have been making a difference in the lives of children for 50 years!   Of special note, one of our current teachers was a member of the first Kindergarten class in 1957! The school was named for Helen Cheney Kimberly, who lived with her family at nearby Kimberly Crest Mansion, a registered historical landmark. Mrs. Kimberly, a prominent Redlands citizen, was a contributor to many philanthropic causes, such as Kimberly Juniors, a service organization for high school girls to help develop their potential for community leadership.

     In acreage, the Kimberly School campus is the largest elementary school in the district. Our large playground area is lined with palm trees and is beautifully maintained. Our “pondless waterfall” and our school garden attract community members on weekends, who sit and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Community members also participate in our many “garden days.”  In addition, unique mosaics of seals, llamas, dolphins and giraffes adorn the facade of each school building. The mosaics were designed by noted Architect Paul Ulmer and have been part of our school for 50 years. These works of art are striking and add charm and distinction to our school. 

     Our 4th & 5th Grade playground, built in September 2008 by the Kimberly Community, was through a grant from the Lowe's Charitable & Education Foundation.  This wonderful playground structrue provides access for ALL to the handicapped-accessible structure.  Families from all over the community enjoy this playground after school hours and on weekends.  Our school will always be grateful for this wonderful donation to our campus by the local Lowe's store as well as the Corporate Offices of Lowe's.
 
     Kimberly School’s mission statement and goals that accompany it, “The Kimberly Elements of Learning,” help us focus our efforts for students in the following areas: Problem Solving, Academic Excellence, Personal Accountability, Confidence, and Sensitivity. Through the collaborative efforts of parents, community, and staff, we work to provide all students with a safe, nurturing environment that challenges them academically and develops their sense of caring and responsibility. The special quality of Kimberly School is built around this premise.  We were thrilled to be recognized by the California State Department of Education in June, 2010 as a CALIFORNIA DISTINGUISHED SCHOOL.

     Our special needs students are an integral part of our school. Besides the students who are supported through Special Education pull-out programs, we also have three District Special Day Classes (SDC). We have one primary Mild to Moderate class, an intermediate Moderate to Severe class, and an Autism class. In addition the East Valley SELPA Occupational Therapy Center is located on our campus. We continue to seek new and innovative ways to support our at-risk and special needs students. These include after-school homework clubs, team-teaching, “buddies” across grade levels, expanded outreach to our parent community, and a multicultural/diversity parent committee, “The Kimberly Culture Cubs.”

     Welcome to Kimberly Elementary School 
Over 50 years of making a difference!
