Who We Are

  • Our Mission: Our mission is to provide every student with a strong foundation of academic, behavioral, and social-emotional skills to prepare them for success in a diverse, challenging, and changing world.

    Our Vision: Each school in the Sunnyvale School District will be known for developing global-minded learners by providing an exemplary education for every student, building on individual strengths, embracing diversity, and fostering community responsibility.

    Our District:  We are a “right size” district.  The Sunnyvale School District team includes 10 schools, and 992 highly qualified educators, administrators, and support staff whose primary goal is to enable the approximately 6,000 students enrolled in our schools to achieve their full potential.   We are located in the heart of Silicon Valley and are proud to have fostered multiple community partnerships that work with us to support this endeavor.  We are small enough that your voice will be heard and you will feel like you are part of our family.  We are large enough that we can scale resources and partnerships to ensure staff and students have what they need to 

    Our Schools:  Our district is comprised of a Universal Pre-K program (including preschool and transitional kindergarten), eight elementary schools serving students in kindergarten through fifth grade, and two middle schools serving students in sixth through eighth grade.  To learn more about each individual school site, find the "Our Schools" tab at the top of the website.  If you would like to learn more about our six “Programs of Choice” schools, click here: SSD Programs of Choice  

    The Sunnyvale School District is proud to have earned a number of state and national awards for our programs, 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.

    Our Students:  Our students are creative, unique, inquisitive, and caring -- they are our heart and our inspiration!   To get a glimpse of our students and how they guide our work, click here. For demographic data, click here.
