Laguna Beach Unified School District is widely recognized as an outstanding district throughout Orange County and the state. This reputation for quality is a result of many factors.

Our principals work closely with our teachers and staff members to set high goals and then work diligently to accomplish those goals.

In Laguna Beach Unified School District, we are incredibly fortunate to have strong community support as shown by the PTA, SchoolPower and the SchoolPower Foundation. The continued support and investment of these organizations has allowed us to provide a truly exceptional learning environment for our students, who are able to choose among a wide array of activities and learning experiences.

Embracing Diversity

Embracing Diversity Logo

LBUSD embraces cultural proficiency, including self-awareness of how each student’s ethnicity, culture and life experiences may impact others. This is an ongoing process that needs to be continually woven into our school and community culture. It is everyone’s responsibility to maintain a welcoming and inclusive community of which we can all be proud. Working with our community partners, LBUSD will sustain a climate that values diversity and fosters inclusion to equip our students with the values they need to be global citizens. While this work is not always comfortable nor easy, it reminds us that we individually contribute to the fabric of our community.
