The San Juan Unified School District has had a proud tradition of powerful instructional programs that support success for students throughout the grades. Teachers, administrators, and classified employees are highly skilled and dedicated to the belief that all students can and will learn in our classrooms. Current leaders have built on that solid foundation and further strengthened teaching and learning through focused strategies guided by the Strategic Plan.
