About Our Schools

Graduation day in Lake Elsinore, CAIt’s an exciting time at the Lake Elsinore Unified School District. With a strong tradition of learning and dedicated professional educators, the district offers students countless opportunities to excel academically and in a wide variety of extra-curricular and athletic programs.

One of Riverside County’s oldest public school systems, the district operates 15 elementary schools, five middle schools, three comprehensive high schools, a continuation high school and four alternative education schools. Previously two separate elementary and high school systems, the district unified in 1987.

Lake Elsinore Unified School District

With more than 22,000 students from Lake Elsinore, the city of Canyon Lake and the unincorporated areas of Wildomar and Horsethief Canyon, the district boasts a diverse and interesting student body that only enriches the educational experience. The district also boasts more than 3,000 employees, making it the biggest employer in Lake Elsinore.

As Lake Elsinore Unified continues to deal with steady growth, the district is also making a strong showing when it comes to academic achievement. In August 2007, scores released by the California Department of Education showed that the district ranked seventh out of 23 school districts in Riverside County.

And while the district is beginning to receive recognition as one of Riverside County’s best, so too are some of its schools. In April 2007, only two county high schools were given the prestigious California Distinguished School designation by state education officials: Elsinore and Temescal Canyon high schools, both Lake Elsinore Unified schools. They joined Luiseno Elementary School, which received the honor when elementary schools were chosen in 2006, as the district’s current Distinguished Schools. What’s more, a half dozen district elementary schools were asked to submit applications for the next round of awards.

What sets Lake Elsinore Unified apart from other districts in the region – besides its diversity and its unprecedented academic success in the last several years – is its connection to the community. The district plays major roles in the annual Unity in the Community Parade and the Unity in the Community 5K. As well, district schools collected and donated nearly 25,000 cans of food to the local charity Helping Our People in Elsinore (HOPE) during the 2005-06 school year.

It truly is an exciting time.
