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