Welcome to Jurupa Unified School District

Jurupa

The Jurupa Unified School District, nestled along the Santa Ana River, covers 47 square miles in Riverside County, enrolling more than 19,000 students. The district, which comprises 25 schools serving pre-kindergarten through 12th grade, evolved from a one-room adobe schoolhouse built in 1856. ​Jurupa Unified is known today for balancing the amenities of a large school district with the personal attention to students, parents and community usually found in smaller operations. The district prizes accessibility and a broad range of programs designed for students of every level and background. The district's priorities include ensuring: ​academic excellence, practical foundations for college and careers, individualized student care, and c​ommunity and family support. ​Many JUSD programs empha...

Superintendent's Message

Children are natural learners, innately curious, and incessantly trying to master the world in which they live.  Watch young children play and you will see them patterning the world around them, sorting out complex social relationships and solving problems with one another.  My Early Childhood Education Professor used to always say, “Play is the work of young childr​en.” As educators, our task is to focus this sometimes free-wheeling energy.  Children seem to learn so many things naturally; to walk, to talk, to play.   As tasks become more complex, teaching and learning become more focused.  Visiting classrooms is one of the highlights of my job; it is also one of the most enlightening things I do. A day spent visiting grade levels in order is a real world lesson in child development.  Tea...
