San Jose Elementary - Home of the Hawks
About our School
Educating the leaders of tomorrow since 1958, San Jose Elementary School is located in a quiet neighborhood in Dunedin, Florida. It is adjacent to Hammock Park.
San Jose is a neighborhood school with a warm, family atmosphere and caring staff members.
If location is everything, then proximity to the Pinellas Trail, Hammock Park, Dunedin Nature Center and the Gulf of Mexico makes our school a "natural choice"
United We Shine! United We Soar!
The mission of San Jose Elementary is to create a safe learning environment which promotes academic excellence through the partnership of students, parents, staff and community.
100% Student Engagement and Success 100% of the Time!
