Welcome to our Cubberley Elementary School website! My name is Magdalena Ruvalcaba and I am the principal of this lovely school. I am honored to be a part of the Cubberley Family, and by extension, the Serra Mesa Community. I have been with San Diego Unified School District for 29 years and have had the opportunity to work in various schools throughout our district. I’ve had many fulfilling experiences as an educator, including: classroom teacher, project resource teacher, English learner support teacher, dean of students, vice principal and principal. However, of the many schools I have worked at, I am most honored to join the fine staff, students, and parents that make up our Cubberley Family.
Cubberley offers many fine programs which make it, what I believe to be, the best school choice for your child. We are a small family-like school with a low student/teacher ratio. Our teachers challenge and support our students towards personal success and provide responsive and targeted instruction. In addition, our parents are equally dedicated; the support they provide to our Cubberley community is immeasurable. Our students work hard every day to achieve high academic standards and to become Peace-Builders in our community.
If you are considering enrolling your child at Cubberley, I would love to give you a tour of our beautiful campus and to share with you, in detail, the programs that we have at Cubberley. I am available before school, during school, after school, and even on weekends! Please call or email me so that we can schedule a time to meet.
