Our District

SCV35 Mission

Our goal in the Santa Cruz Valley school district is to provide a top-quality education for every student, every day. In a world where it's easy to feel like just another number, we relish the opportunity to know every student on an individual basis and to appreciate the value that each one brings to the collective whole. We recognize that there are many different ways to learn, and we work hard to ensure that every student has the opportunity to grow and thrive.

At Santa Cruz Valley USD, we offer an outstanding curriculum taught by highly qualified teachers who empower their students by giving them the tools to be successful now and in the future. Our comprehensive range of programs for students from preschool through high school include:

  • An excellent early literacy program, with reduced class sizes in grades K - 2, so every child receives the personalized attention he or she needs to build strong literacy skills

  • A special education program where every qualifying child receives customized services to best meet his or her needs

  • A gifted education program to expand the learning opportunities for eligible students from K - 12th grade

  • Excellent advanced placement and college prep classes, in addition to a topnotch career and technical education program at the high school

  • A Family Resource Center, where we provide support for families throughout the district and also sponsor our kindergarten readiness program

These are only a few of the many benefits we offer the students attending our district's excellent schools.
