Education Insights

Education Insights Image
The definition of constant is a situation or state of affairs that does not change. In education there has always been a constant that one can find anywhere in the world – the dedication of adults to children. This is accomplished by teaching, supporting, guiding, loving and helping in many different ways to help them be successful.
The Palos Verdes Peninsula Unified School District builds upon a foundation of strength and a tradition of excellence through the commitment and dedication of our staff, students, parents, and community members.  The result is a constant and predictable environment for our students, overwhelmingly positive and successful by any measure.
Parents volunteer hundreds of thousands of hours and help offset the education funding challenges of public education in California. Teachers and support staff put in countless hours working with students and ensuring they will accomplish academic success in a positive learning environment with the necessary resources and support systems. Our community on the Peninsula has prioritized education and respects the value of excellent schools as cornerstones in local neighborhoods. 
Everyone plays a role in making this happen for the most important people – students. Our constant has been delivering the best education possible for them since the first school was erected over ninety years ago.  We are thankful for all of you who have had a hand in our past victories and for those of you planning to add your name to the great days ahead!
