• Welcome to the Del Mar Union School District


    Welcome to the Del Mar Union School District, a premier district in the nation! 

    DMUSD is a district of thinking, inspiration, and impact. Our students experience a high quality instructional core defined by strong academics and superb instructional practice. We chart the course through high standards, top-performing staff, and meaningful learning experiences.  Engaging, flexible learning environments are alive with critical thinking, real-world applications to solving problems, and curiosity that is encouraged via creativity and innovation. 

    District Design 2022 is a bold plan that pushes us in an unrelenting pursuit of the extraordinary school experience. The future demands we think flexibly; learning requires we vary routes; and the world demands we empower each student.  Our world is defined by exponential change.  As we lean into the future and seize opportunities to revolutionize the traditional school system, how might our children multiply their influence and impact? How will we drive design and innovation, inspire one another and expand our thinking? How will we deepen children’s understanding of the skills that matter most – skills including ethics, character, leadership, communication, civic and international knowledge, and economics?  This is our call to action!

    Our DMUSD community is unique for all that we make possible. Families make an unwavering impact every day and are a foundation of our schools. Partnering with families, DMUSD students embody a spirit of teamwork, leadership, and strength in character.  The DMUSD community is caring and giving, and members participate in children’s lives in countless ways. Our school PTAs and the Del Mar Schools Education Foundation provide for valuable district and school programs, and their leadership is critical in reaching philanthropic goals.  Through contributions and volunteer efforts, robust programs and STEAM+ learning continue to thrive.

    DMUSD – where we prepare all students to be college ready, globally competitive, and engaged citizen leaders. It is our mission to ignite genius and empower students. Our children will make an impact and advance the world!
