Organization Summary


The vision of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District is to prepare our students to become good citizens, parents, workers and leaders in the complex, rapidly changing world they will inherit. They will develop strong self-discipline, inter-personal skills, personal values, social and civic responsibilities and respect for nature and for others. They will be able to move beyond us, each prepared to earn a living, cultivate a dream and make a difference.


The mission of the Manhattan Beach Unified School District is to prepare all of our students to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing, highly complex, technology rich, global society. We will continually strive for excellence in all aspects of the education process. We will teach our students to understand and appreciate human and cultural diversity. We will harness the resources of the entire community, including students, parents, teachers, staff, administrators, college and business leaders and others. We will empower students to be lifelong learners, to demonstrate high achievement and to develop the skills and characteristics needed to enjoy happy and successful lives.
