    Welcome to Simi Valley Schools

    At Simi Valley Schools, we value every family passing through our schools and programs. It's so important to us that we've made it Our Promise to our community, that we will inspire each and every student to succeed in school, career and life.

    Our 28 school sites offer opportunities for every child, starting with preschool at Justin Early Learners Academy and then into one of our 18 elementary schools, three middle and four high schools. Adults seeking continuing education options will find exciting courses and certificate programs at our Simi Institute for Careers & Education. We even have a thriving homeschool/independent study program available through Monte Vista School for Kindergarten through 12th grade.

    The Simi Valley Unified School District is Ventura County's second largest school district (as of the 2018-2019 school year), and it serves the city of Simi Valley and the unincorporated Ventura County areas adjacent to the city's borders. Our size gives us the incredible advantage to offer many diverse programs and courses to meet the needs and interests of every student coming to us. Each school is distinctive and while all of our K-12 schools follow state mandated curriculum guidelines, each also offers more, through its specialized courses, programs and/or extra-curricular activities.

    Our website contains pages and links filled with school and program information, as do the websites for each school within our District. All of our friendly, knowledgeable staff are available to answer questions and give tours of their schools for interested families. You just have to call the school you're interested in and ask. 

    We hope we've inspired you to look more closely at Simi Valley Schools, if you're researching opportunities for your family. If you're already with us, thank you for being an important part of our family.

    OUR PROMISE

     

    The Simi Valley Unified School District offers the families of Simi Valley and the surrounding area a vibrant portfolio of educational choices built on a common sense of community, and the common purpose of inspiring each and every student to succeed in school, career and life.

    We believe that the best student outcomes are achieved when we provide:

    • Rigorous academic programs, relevant to a diverse and changing world;
    • High expectations that respect the differences in our students;
    • Exceptional instruction in an innovative learning environment;
    • Opportunities for our students to build confidence and strong character;
    • Participation of everyone in our students’ success.

    We are driven, proud and passionate about the personal and intellectual success of each and every student.

    No matter where the future takes you, the road to success runs through Simi Valley.

    Information & Resources

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!
    Dear Simi Valley Schools Community: Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! We hope that this message finds you and your family healthy.Monday, August 17, is the first day of school for Simi Valley Schools. We know that this year is not starting the way that any of us predicted. The chaos caused by the Covid-19 pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, especially education. As we start this year in Virtual Learning, we want to reassure our families that school is open, and education is happening. The delivery of instruction and range of options may look different, but our mission remains the same: to provide the best educational experiences and opportunities for all of our students.Our educators have been learning hard. Teachers have received training on how to best instruct their students using remote technologies. We have consistent policies and tools in place, as was promised to our families over the summer. We have support in place for any ongoing needs our teachers and school staffs might have. Attendance will be taken each day and class assignments will count. We are ready and excited to have your children back with us, and even if the logistics are not ideal, I know that we will provide an engaging, fun and instructive learning experience for them.At some point, we will be allowed to return to our campuses, and when that green light is given to us, we will return to our schools in person. At that time, we will offer a blended-learning model for those families who wish to have in-person instruction, and we will continue to offer virtual instruction for those families more comfortable at home. This is the main reason we have been careful with how we have scheduled our students into their classes, because we need the transition back to in-person instruction to be as seamless as possible for them. Each school has kept to its regular start times and bell schedules as much as possible. We thank you for your support as we continue to work through last-minute scheduling changes, and ask that you check your child’s schedule in Aeries on Sunday to make sure you know when and what class they will start with on Monday.I am extremely proud of our Simi Valley Schools staff, now more than ever. From our employees in our District Office to our employees at our school sites, I have watched all of them adapt to the current conditions and new requirements for performing their jobs with grace and the same attention to detail as I see during normal times. They have worked countless hours—and still are—to make sure that all of the many details involved with starting a new school year in a new manner are handled. There will be hiccups along the way; we are doing things that have not been done before on this scale, and we will most assuredly have problems that need to be solved. But after watching the commitment and expertise around me, I know that we will pull it all together and successfully teach our students from here on. Please continue to grant us the gift of your patience as we start this new year.Whether we are in-person or virtual, we want our students and their families to celebrate their first day of school. After all, our traditions are more important than ever in these non-traditional days. For those who are willing, we ask that any pictures of your children that you post to your social media of choice (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), that you include the hashtag #SimiSchoolsFirstDay2020 on your posts. That way we can all enjoy our community’s first day of school through your photos.Thank you for trusting us with your children. We are proud to serve our families. And remember that at Simi Valley Schools, our students go from here to anywhere, even virtually!Dr. Jason PeplinskiSuperintendentSimi Valley Unified School District
