The newly-renovated Redondo Beach Unified School District consists of eight elementary schools, two middle schools, one high school, one continuation school, one community day school, one adult school, and a district-wide child development center. The district serves more than 8,800 K-12 students and despite declining enrollment trends throughout California, RBUSD continues to grow. We attribute the enrollment increase to: 1) great teaching and student engagement; and 2) the passages of a $145 million construction bond in 2008 and a solar and technology bond in 2012 aimed at providing state of the art instructional tools while relieving the district’s general fund. The Redondo Beach community supports its public schools in words and action. Redondo Beach Unified School District IS the finest school district in the South Bay!
Continued forward progress has been the focal point for the Board of Education, the administration, and the staff. Establishing data-driven educational programs, careful utilization of resources, and enhanced community and city relationships have secured a stronger commitment to better serving the students in our fine schools. Our reputation, statewide data, and achievement rankings have continued to climb. RBUSD has also created community-focused programs and movements, such as our College-Going Culture, Safe School Ambassador, and Vitality Cities. Too, our new and greatly modernized facilities are likely to continue this partnership into our city and wider community. The whole child’s needs—socially, academically, emotionally, and physically—are the centerpiece for success at RBSUD.
Redondo Beach Unified is just that, unified. Students, parents, and staff model schooling and learning that is collaborative, rigorous, and transformational. We are proud of our excellent Parent Teacher Association and Education Foundation; these groups assist the district with providing a sound educational and enrichment programs. The culture of our district does not embrace the status quo, but rather reaches for what tomorrow’s learning may bring to us all. Redondo is indeed Reaching for Greatness.
