Alvord Today

  • Transforming the Educational Landscape

    In Alvord Unified School District, we believe that everyone has the right to a world-class education. We are honored to serve a community enriched by its diversity, encompassing the western portion of the City of Riverside, the eastern portion of the City of Corona, and segments of incorporated parts of Riverside County.  Daily, each of our 23 schools provides our nearly 20,000 students with the relevant, engaging, and innovative learning experiences necessary to inspire them to fulfill their own unlimited potential. 

    Using an asset-based approach and building on the belief that excellence is within everyone, we seek student voice and empower teachers to lead as we support a collective focus on Literacy and Equity.  Literacy is a vital component of college and career readiness, and our district-wide plan outlines the steps necessary to ensure that students gain the ability to read, write, and communicate with competence and confidence in the 21st century.

    As a learning organization committed to addressing the unique needs of each student, Alvord is proud to offer and grow a number of programs such as Dual Language Immersion (DLI), International Baccalaureate (IB), Project Lead The Way (PLTW), Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID), Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), Alliance for a Healthier Generation, and a music program beginning with instrumental music in the elementary grades, each taught by dedicated, highly qualified teachers. 

    Capitalizing on the belief that success is our shared responsibility, we empower every individual to collectively transform the educational landscape.
