Welcome to the Sunnyvale School District! Here in the Sunnyvale School District, we aim to build on each child’s individual strengths and learning styles, providing a well-rounded education that focuses on our students’ needs, both academic and social-emotional.
Our mission is to prepare each and every one of our students with a strong foundation of skills and knowledge to succeed in their educational pursuits. To enable each student to achieve, we start with a challenging curriculum and excellent instruction; further, we support students’ social-emotional needs, provide differentiated and individualized instruction, and use regular assessments to evaluate and enhance instruction. Browse our “Initiatives” section to learn more about what we do.
Here’s a glimpse into what makes us special:
The Sunnyvale School District team includes 943 highly qualified educators, administrators and support staff whose primary goal is to enable the approximately 6,800 students enrolled in our schools to achieve academic success. Our district has experienced steady enrollment growth over the past few years, and this trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.
Our district is comprised of four preschools, eight elementary schools serving students in Kindergarten through fifth grade, and two middle schools serving students in sixth through eighth grade. About two-thirds of the K-8 students who live in the City of Sunnyvale are within the boundaries of the Sunnyvale School District. Sunnyvale is located in the northwestern section of Santa Clara County, the heart of the Santa Clara Valley. This area is home to many of the largest and most progressive electronics firms in the nation and is often referred to as “Silicon Valley.”
We welcome and value your involvement in your children’s education and our community’s schools, and we hope that this site helps you to learn more about who we are, what we do, how we work, and the important role you play in our success.
Please ask staff at your child’s school about information and events specific to your school, and we invite you to contact us here at the district by email or phone (408) 522-8200, ext. 1016, if you have questions or feedback for us!
The Sunnyvale School District is proud to have earned a number of state and national awards for our program, including National Blue Ribbon Schools, which recognizes schools throughout the country that display either dramatic improvement or high levels of performance, and California Distinguished Schools, which honor exemplary and inspiring public schools that have demonstrated significant gains in narrowing the achievement gap.
