The San Diego Unified School District is proud to call itself one of the top large urban school districts in the United States. Measures include our top scores on state and national tests, and our leadership in areas such as academic excellence, technology, the arts, and student health. Strong academics are at the core of our mission to make sure every child graduates ready to succeed in college, a career, and the community where they live. We have acted to raise graduation standards and students have responded by achieving the highest graduation rate of any big-city district in the state. We have schools across the city that offer Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) programs, International Baccalaureate® (IB) instruction, Advanced Placement (AP) courses, courses for college credit, and dual-language classrooms.
