Superintendent’s Alhambra Unified School District Academic Mission Statement
Excellence and Equity in a Global Haven
The dynamic and award-winning Alhambra Unified School District serves 17,000 K-12 students on 19 campuses in a richly culturally diverse community. In this unique global haven, AUSD showcases its dedication to both excellence and equity in rigorous whole student 21st century learning for the competitive college and careers of the future. The District is known for its superlative team of administrators, teachers and staff; an active, supportive Board; engaged parents and students; innovative business and academic partnerships; it’s creative, data-driven, consensus-building approach, and its famously student-centered collaborative community. The depth of AUSD’s strong relationships across many fronts has won the District numerous Gold Ribbon, Distinguished Schools, and Title I Academic Achievement Awards. Additionally, AUSD has been awarded multiple Golden Bell Awards for such efforts as its acclaimed LIFT (Learning Independence for Transition) Program and its sought-out Saturday School Program (SSP) for parents and students; the singular Model SARB Award Model Program for exemplary practice in student re-engagement; COE Award for Model Continuing High Schools, among many other honors. AUSD’s Dual Immersion Programs in Mandarin and Spanish and its STEM partnerships with UCLA Center X are winning accolades. The District’s recently approved $259 million school bond for technology, security and building improvements and upgrades will further enhance AUSD’s ability to offer each student an environment in which to thrive. It is my privilege to work with and for such a distinguished and accomplished team in our AUSD Students First culture.
With vision and dedication,
