Welcome to the Ventura Unified School District

OUR Promise

When it comes to delivering an education that prepares students for a future in the world today, a one-size-fits-all approach no longer suffices. Students must be able to think critically, approach problem-solving with agility and creativity, be open to exploration, and adapt to new ideas and pathways they will invariably encounter throughout their lives.

At Ventura Unified School District, we cultivate a wealth of diverse academic programs so every student in our community has the chance to explore and engage with a learning environment that not only challenges them academically, but also promotes their growth as people, scholars, and citizens of the world, in an open and positive environment.

Our passion is to help the children in our schools find their passion—academically and personally—believing that each and every student has a brilliant future ahead of them.

We hope that you can easily find what you need on our website.  However, if you are still in need of help please contact our VUSD Call Center to speak with someone about your question.  The Call Center can be reached Mon.-Fri. 7:30 am- 4:30 pm at the following numbers:
English- 805-641-5000 x1380
Spanish- 805-641-5000 x 1390
