Student test scores traditionally lead schools throughout the County of San Bernardino. Many alternative education opportunities are available for students needing a nurturing environment outside the traditional classroom. The District offers a wide variety of elective courses, ROP career pathways courses, and small learning academies. The graduation rate of 88.9% is far above the statewide rate of 80.2% and countywide rate of 78.3%. The drop-out rate of 5.9% is on the decline and is well below the state average of 11.6% and the county rate of 12.2%. An F1 Visa program is in its third year for non-immigrant students to spend a year in one of the District’s high schools.
Chino Valley Unified is responsive to the needs of families by offering before and after school care. Thriving performing arts and athletic programs, nationally recognized marching bands, and invigorating parent involvement programs distinguish Chino Valley Unified School District as one of the best school districts in California.
In 2014 and for the third time in four years, Chino Valley Unified has been designated as a Model School Attendance Review Board (SARB) District by the State Superintendent of Public Instruction for its attendance improvement and dropout. The SARB process is available for students with problems above and beyond the norm and provides resources for families who may be experiencing issues that contribute to a student’s truancy.
Chino Valley Unified is also home to the award winning Attendance Counts! campaign that has generated an additional $3.6 million in revenue since 2007. Revenue that is generated by students for students.
Humility, Civility and Service are the District’s guiding principles.
The District motto is: Student Achievement, Safe Schools and Positive School Climate.
