The San Ramon Valley Unified School District encompasses the communities of Alamo, Blackhawk, Danville, Diablo, and San Ramon (including the new Dougherty Valley communities) as well as a small portion of the cities of Walnut Creek and Pleasanton. The district is comprised of 35 schools serving more than 30,000 students in Kindergarten through Grade 12.
District students are exposed to a Standards-based curriculum with a strong focus on the essential skills including language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Strong physical education, health, foreign language, technology, and visual and performing arts programs are also offered. The district has implemented comprehensive K-12 Standards and Benchmarks which define the essential knowledge and skills that students should acquire in every subject area. Students graduating from district high schools are required to have earned 240 designated credits. Opportunities include a rigorous academic program, outstanding technical and vocational curricula, and innovative elective courses. All students have opportunities to participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities.
Academically, SRVUSD currently ranks 6th among all unified school districts in California, and is the highest ranking unified school district in the state with enrollments of 9,000 or more (California Academic Performance Index). Over 94% of our graduating seniors attend college or university, and district students are accepted into the University of California and the California State University systems at rates far exceeding state averages. Furthermore, the district has been recognized for its excellence through such honors as the coveted State Department of Education's Distinguished Schools Award (schools in the district have received this honor more than 50 times, more than any other district in northern California), and through recognition by the U.S. Department of Education as National Blue Ribbon Schools.
The district has a wide range of state and federally-mandated special education programs. The district's Inclusion Program is a model in the state. All district K-12 schools have resource specialist programs and site staff includes at least one resource teacher and a part-time psychologist, speech therapist, and health educator.
SRVUSD is proud of its highly trained, talented, and dedicated staff and an involved, committed, and highly educated parent community.
