PCSD identified a former Gottschalk’s department store in downtown Watsonville for Navigator’s new Watsonville Prep school. This school opened in 2019 at a Prop 39 space with 187 students in grades K-2. With this new facility which had its first day in September 2021, the school will be able to serve 565 students in grades TK-8. The facility has 19 classrooms, an upstairs and downstairs reception, teachers’ lounge, media center, gym/mpr, food servery, basketball court, playspace/climbing wall, and handicapped parking. PCSD has invested $1MM in this project.
“We are super grateful for the partnership and support from PCSD and we can see the impact our new facility is having on our students in Watsonville. It has really brought us together in a very positive way.”
