Welcome to San Diego Schools Network
My name is Cherylyn Pasetto, and I'm the Founder of San Diego Schools Network. I've been doing school research in San Diego for 10 years.
I'm a wife and mother of 2 beautiful children. I've lived in San Diego for 21 years, a transplant here from the east coast during my mid twenties. I've lived in several cities within San Diego County: Pacific Beach, Leucadia, La Costa, Aviara, Sorrento Valley, Pacific Highlands Ranch, Del Mar, Encinitas, and have now called San Marcos home for 15 years. I have a B.S. in Accounting and after 8 years in the field, I made a career change into recruiting, and then moved on to human resources doing interviewing and hiring for a large corporation in UTC.
My school research began in 2011 when school wasn't a fit for my son. I made it my mission to know all schools so I wasn't missing an option. I thought the perfect school for him was out there, but I just didn't know about it yet. I also realized when my daughter started preschool and then kindergarten that she had completely different needs and required a separate school from her brother. I wanted them both to thrive in their own individualistic ways so my research continued on.
2011 - School Research Begins
2015 - San Diego North County Schools Network Facebook Group Opens
Feb 2017 - San Diego Central, East County, and South Bay Facebook Groups Open
Apr 2017 - San Diego Schools Network Website Begins
Jan 2021 - Website traffic reaches over 1500 visits a month
It's all been a labor of love. It's now been 10 years since my research started. I work daily to keep the website up to date, I post in the Facebook group to keep parents aware of school openings, and I do educational consulting. I love every second of what I do. I'm highly meticulous(must be the accounting in me) so I feel that helps with creating the website lists. I empathize with others struggling to find a school fit and want to help. There will always be someone in need, and I want to be here for you(whether it be the website, the discussion group, or private consulting).
Thanks so much for utilizing this site for your own research, and I hope it helps you find the perfect schooling options for your children. Please share it with all your friends in need. My ultimate goal is to make the process easier for you than it was for me.
