Superintendent's Message

Dear ABC Community,
 
It is with great honor and privilege to serve as the Superintendent of ABC Unified School District. ABC Unified School District is comprised of ten preschools, 30 schools and serves over 21,000 (K-12) ethnically diverse students in the cities of Artesia, Cerritos, Hawaiian Gardens, and portions of Lakewood, Long Beach, and Norwalk.  Our Adult School serves an additional 10,000 adult learners in the region.
 
As Superintendent of this award winning District, I am honored to be a part of its rich history of academic achievement and innovative partnerships. The District continues its commitment to raise student achievement with a dedicated Board of Education, dynamic staff, engaged parents, and hardworking students. Our strong collaborative partnerships with our employee organizations, local businesses, PTA, ABC Education Foundation, colleges, and civic groups help to advance our mission.
 
The mission of ABC Unified School District is to develop a community of lifelong learners, creative thinkers, and responsible individuals by providing innovative and high quality educational programs in a safe and supportive environment.
 
The District offers an array of educational options for students and families to participate in. This includes thematic magnet schools, a dual language immersion program, STEM (Science Technology Engineering) Program at both the elementary and secondary levels, an IB World School, bi-literacy programs, international exchange programs, and visual performing arts at every level.
 
We are very honored to have been recognized for our numerous National Blue Ribbon School Awards, California Distinguished Schools, CA Gold Ribbon Schools, Schools to Watch/National Model Middle Schools, Golden Bell Awards from the California School Boards Association, and Grand Prize Magna Award from the National School Boards Association. In 2017-2018, our District was one of 24 school districts to be selected as an Honor Roll District in California.
 
The District maintains a sharp focus on teaching and learning to ensure that “every student, in every classroom, every day” is provided a world class education.
