Celebrating graduates

“Instruction ends in the schoolroom, but education ends only with life."


  • Frederick W. Robertson, English novelist​ 

This spring, Jurupa Unified proudly graduates ​over 1,320 students, the culmination of years of academic progress.  This moment is a testament to the strength, determination and attention to craft shown by hundreds of students – along with their parents, families, teachers, staff and administrators – at every school.

The graduates have diverse backgrounds, goals and dreams, but Jurupa schools have helped equip each and every student to learn without limits for a lifetime. 

Now, as the Class of 2019 moves on to college, careers and achievements yet unknown, the graduates earn praise for building academic, personal and extracurricular strengths that will serve them well in the journey ahead. 

Below is snapshot of each school's graduating class.
