Welcome to the Huntington Beach Union High School District

It is with excitement and enthusiasm that we begin our journey together in the Huntington Beach Union High School District working with people to make a difference in the lives of our students. I thank you for visiting our website and for getting involved in the countless learning opportunities and extra-curricular activities that make our district special. Since joining the HBUHSD team on January 3, 2017, I have enjoyed interacting with students, staff, and parents that appreciate our district’s efforts to bring the highest quality of education to our future leaders. 

Located in central Orange County, the HBUHSD proudly serves nearly 15,000 students from four elementary feeder school districts including Fountain Valley, Huntington Beach City, Ocean View, and Westminster.

Our six comprehensive high schools, two alternative high schools, and adult education program enjoy both local recognition as well as a national reputation. Our successes including high test scores, interscholastic championships, and acclaimed performing arts is a direct result of a strong teaching faculty, a dedicated classified staff, and a strong leadership team of school site administrators that receive support from a well-respected and knowledgeable Board of Trustees. This, coupled with strong parent and community advocates, enables our district to educate, prepare, and inspire our students to change the world.   

This is accomplished through educational programs that emphasize the development of basic life-long skills by providing innovative learning pathways to support student achievement, connecting students through interactive and engaging instruction, increasing student achievement through access to the most challenging and relevant curriculum, and focusing on the best instructional practices utilizing data driven decisions. Twenty-first century literacy and writing skills, coupled with a solid mathematics and science background, will help prepare our students for college and career readiness.

Thank you again for taking the time to navigate our website, support our schools, and contribute to the ongoing process of developing students who will be the future leaders in our society.
