Last year marked the 20-th anniversary of San Diego Russian School!
Since 1998, the San Diego Russian School has welcomed kids from all over San Diego County for Sunday classes. Thanks to the continuing support of the UCSD Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies (REEES) Program the School has been able to offer a variety of classes for children with different levels of fluency in Russian. Our student participated and won awards in several nationwide contests. During the school year, students had an opportunity to meet with the UCSD REEES students and faculty who came to school and talked about their research and studies. We are very happy about the growth of SDRS in the past year and look forward to another productive year.
The 2019-2020 school year registration is now open.

Russian as a Foreign Language class for both adults and youth. This class is for students who have just begun their journey in Russian education.
San Diego Russian School promotes cross-cultural connections by providing a broad education system which covers Russian language, history, and literature in a bilingual environment. The school was originally founded in 1998 to retain heritage language, history, and culture among Russian children and teenagers living in San Diego. Since then the school has developed into an immersion program offering a broad array of subjects for both fluent speakers and beginners.
