The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District is on its way to becoming one of the finest public school systems in the country. We envision a school system that serves ALL students well, and engages each student in deep learning that prepares them to solve the challenges of the 21st century. This vision takes hard work, commitment, and a focus on continuous improvement.
MPUSD is built on a solid foundation of effective instruction, positive school culture, systems of supports, and collaborative leadership. We are building innovative schools that offer dynamic learning opportunities to all students. While our programs will evolve over time, our focus remains steadfast on increasing student achievement and eliminating performance gaps.
The district was established July 1, 1966, and is nestled along the Monterey Bay. MPUSD stretches from the city of Marina to the north to the city of Monterey to the south, and encompasses the communities of Del Rey Oaks, Marina, Monterey, Sand City and Seaside.
