This school is located in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe, home of Lillian Rice, a renowned architect. We worked closely with the RSF Review Board in RSF to build a beautiful new school in the traditional Mission Revival style typical of Rancho Santa Fe.

Joan Sparkman Alternative Educational Center Modernization

Joan Sparkman Alternative Educational Campus accommodates two high schools within one large campus - Rancho Vista High School and Susan H. Nelson High School. This campus is also integrated with CSU San Marcos at Temecula.

This former kitchen area will be completely transformed into a modern music classroom and support space. Currently in construction, our staff has been able to oversee construction to ensure coordination of our design vision with both the District's design standards and Educational Specifications.
