The Natomas Unified School District, named the second most diverse school district in the nation in a New York Times study, is located just minutes north of downtown Sacramento and the State Capitol.
We are a growing district with strong programs and a variety of options for students and their families. With a 96% graduation rate, one of the highest in Sacramento county, our students are supported and have access to programs and resources that prepare them for college and career. From wide access to Advanced Placement Courses to 1 in 3 students enrolled at International Baccalaureate (IB) schools to 70% of our graduates completing A-G requirements, the courses required for CSU/UC admission, we are committed to our Core Belief that “Every Student Can Learn and Succeed.” To further support students obtaining 21st century skills in a competitive global economy, we currently offer 10 Career Technical Education Pathways at our high schools – Broadcast Media, Building and Construction Trades, Digital Media, Engineering, Health, Hospitality, Public Safety, Transportation, Business Entrepreneurship, and Visual Arts and Technology.
It’s never too early to begin preparing students for college and career, so we begin to expose students to opportunities that await them after high school. We have IB Early Years and Middle Years for students K-8 at two schools, and we have schools that have an intense focus on STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. Each year, we continue to demonstrate steady growth on our student’s performance in English Language Arts and Math on the state exam CAASPP.
Our community supports us and passed a $300 million school bond that enhances 21st century learning through new schools, science labs, classrooms, classroom buildings, library renovations, Career Technical Education facilities, and many other projects that support the learning environment. We have much to be excited about! We invite you to learn more about our schools and how we are working hard each day towards our vision, “NUSD will provide an engaging and safe learning community where all students will demonstrate responsibility, achieve academic and social-emotional growth, embrace diversity, and are prepared to make decisions about their college and career success.”
