About the NVUSD

NHS Students celebrate graduation by throwing graduation hats.

Transforming Lives by Instilling and Inspiring Lifelong Learning in Every Student

Established in 1965, Napa Valley Unified School District serves the communities of Napa and American Canyon. Over 16,500 students attend our 27 schools in grades TK-12.

Our students are all individuals, with their own talents, interests, needs and goals. That means that we nurture and challenge advanced learners, who want to expand their learning horizons, as well as students who have physical, emotional or cognitive challenges that require more support.

We offer rigorous academic courses, robust Career Technical Education options and diverse extracurricular and athletic programs. Our students can learn in traditional neighborhood schools, magnet schools, independent study, dual immersion English-Spanish programs, online options and more.

NVUSD is governed by an elected board of education and is led in partnership with our Superintendent and leadership team. The district employs over 1,600 dedicated faculty and staff members, working collaboratively to achieve our district goals outlined in our strategic plan.
