Our School District

All staff in Capistrano Unified School District is committed to the belief that children will learn, that children will learn more today than yesterday, and that they will learn more tomorrow than today. The District’s commitment to the more than 53,000 students entrusted to its care remains steadfast. Our commitment to instructional excellence drives the mission of our nearly 4,000 employees.

Founded in 1965, Capistrano Unified encompasses 195 square miles in seven cities and a portion of the unincorporated area of Orange County. With 63 campuses, it is the largest employer in south Orange County. The District includes all or part of the cities of San Clemente, Dana Point, San Juan Capistrano, Laguna Niguel, Aliso Viejo, Mission Viejo and Rancho Santa Margarita, and the communities of Las Flores, Coto de Caza, Dove Canyon, Ladera Ranch, and Wagon Wheel.

The District is governed by a seven-member Board of Trustees, which generally meets twice monthly at the Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) Education Center, 33122 Valle Road, San Juan Capistrano. Information about meeting times and agendas is available on the District website or by calling (949) 234-9207.
