Antelope Valley Unified School District

Public School District – Lancaster , California

The school district’s mission is to provide a safe and secure learning environment that promotes a rigorous curriculum and enables their students to develop the necessary academic, technical, and work-related skills of the 21st century. The large sizes of the schools allow them to specialize on subjects and activities outside of a typical curriculum like law, Latin, sign language or a karate club. Students enjoy all the classic sports like football, basketball and baseball and can take part in arts curriculum including studio art, drama and speech, etc. All schools in Antelope Valley encourage international students to take part in as many activities as possible outside the regular curriculum. It is a great way to try something new and to make friends!
