Part of the Oceanside Unified School District, Palmquist Elementary School once served grades Kindergarten through 6th. 6th grade in recent years has been incorporated into the "middle schools," leaving the elementary schools with Kindergarten through 5th grades. Built circa 1960, Palmquist Elementary School will be closed during the 2012-2013 school year for extensive renovations. Its classes will be held at an alternate location, the former Ditmar Elementary School, during this time.
The existing buildings are currently undergoing demolition.
Located at 1999 California Street.
