We take great pride in the educational program we offer to our students. Our belief is that for a district to achieve a high level of success we must identify the unique learning needs of each individual student and deliver an instructional program that is appropriate and effective.

Our instructional staff regularly uses data to shape their instructional program. We strive to ensure that all students master essential standards while simultaneously providing instruction designed such that our most capable students are adequately challenged.

Our Board of Education has shown great leadership in creating an environment that supports its teachers and its staff. The Board of Education has always provided the resources necessary to guarantee that all students have adequate resources to support their educational program. Teachers are given up to date instructional materials that are aligned to state standards. The Board recognizes the importance of staff development and annually invests substantial resources in teacher training.

The community of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is an invaluable partner in creating an enriched learning environment for our students. Our PTAs are among the most active and effective in California. The community supports the Peninsula Education Foundation which raises substantially more than $2,000,000 annually to fund educational programs at all schools. Parent volunteers are present at every school site every day of the school year.

As you explore our web site I trust you will discover some of the attributes that make the Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District special.
