Busy Kaplan language school leaves La Jolla for downtown San Diego spot

Students from Kaplan language school frequently darted across Torrey Pines Road during breaks to the dismay of nearby residents. The school moved its offices to downtown San Diego last week.

Kaplan International Colleges’ English language school, formerly located in a three-story building on a busy section of Torrey Pines Road, has left La Jolla for a space on Sixth Avenue in downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp District.

The bustling language school, which had more than 200 students enrolled in day and evening classes, was a source of frustration for some residents, who noted the dangers of students frequently darting across Torrey Pines Road during breaks, and a lack of adequate parking for students.

Though the school was located in an office building at 1111 Torrey Pines Road that includes an underground parking garage, a sign at the entrance to the garage read “no student parking.”

During the last day of classes on Aug. 15, 2013, a representative for the school said it had outgrown the space in La Jolla, though declined to comment further on the relocation. The 5,000-square-foot space, which occupies the entire second floor, is currently for rent.
