Our Mission

  • Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District (LVJUSD) is an award-winning district that serves more than 13,000 students in transitional kindergarten through 12th grade at nine elementary campuses, two K-8 schools, three middle schools, two comprehensive high schools, and two alternative schools. The District features International Baccalaureate Programmes, Green Engineering Academy, Dual Immersion Program and Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) pathways.


    Each student will graduate with the skills needed to contribute and thrive in a changing world.

    This mission drives our daily work.  Our dedicated employees, led by our Superintendent, Chris Van Schaack and our Board of Trustees, work together to create a nurturing environment for all students to succeed.  Throughout our district, we share an unwavering commitment to continuous improvement.  We integrate character development in all we do.  We teach students the communication and collaboration skills to work as a team, and the creativity, tenacity, and critical thinking necessary to solve the problems of the future.


    Our students, staff, and community join together to build a bright future.
