San Luis Obispo Unified School District (SLCUSD) has a long-standing commitment to educating the whole child. Our curriculum is designed to help students develop intellectually, physically, emotionally, ethically, and socially. We encourage students to become active, engaged learners and responsible citizens. At each grade level our teachers challenge students and help them achieve academic and intellectual competencies. We have 10 elementary schools, including 3 choice schools, 2 middle schools, 2 comprehensive high schools, with one alternative high school. 

Instructional Services Learning and Achievement (ISLA) supports all learners preK-12, staff professional development, and adult education.
