Laguna Beach Unified School District is a future ready district.  We are committed to providing 21st century teaching and learning to all of our students to ensure that they are ready for both college and career.  Opportunities include a wide range of courses, beginning in elementary school and continuing through high school, in computer sciences, STEM, and Career Technical Education that give our students a broad range of experiences toward that end.  

Our teachers and leaders are committed to continuous improvement, and participate in ongoing professional development focused on developing engaging lessons and learning opportuntities for our students. Students are engaged in communicating, collaborating, and thinking both creatively and critically throughout the learning process to ensure that they gain these important skills along with the strong content knowledge needed to be successful in today's world.  Our 1:1 device program in grades 3-12 ensures that our students have the tools needed to prepare for college and careers and to keep up with ever-evolving technology.  Our 4C Learning Environment, or 4CLE initiative, is bringing the community into the development of 21st century  classrooms in our district as teachers design learning spaces to facilitate application-based activities.  

LBUSD serves as a model for the Professional Learning Community (PLC) philosophy, in which teachers and site leaders work collaboratively with the shared goal of improving student learning. The California State Standards (CSS) provide the foundation for powerful classroom instruction, effective intervention strategies, and rigorous and relevant curriculum. In addition, LBUSD students will continue to enjoy exemplary athletic, music, art and enrichment programs that foster well-rounded students who are prepared for global citizenship.  Social emotional well-being continues to be a priority in our district, as we continuously monitor programs, grades K-12, to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our students.  

Students in Laguna Beach will be ready for the challenges of the future!
