Our District

Inglewood Unified School District (IUSD) is an ethnically and culturally diverse school district serving the communities of Inglewood and Ladera Heights in Los Angeles County. Inglewood USD and its communities share a rich history of accomplishments in numerous spheres: arts and entertainment, sports, educational attainment, civic pride and engagement, and family-friendly supports and services. The mission of IUSD remains on providing effective educational experiences for every student in our care.

Our Mission

Our mission is to nurture, educate, and graduate students who are self-responsible and self-disciplined; who are critical and creative thinkers; who master the core academic disciplines; and who are advocates for equity and social justice for self and their community.


Our Equity Principle 

At every point along their educational journey, each student will be provided personalized opportunities and equitable resources for consistent academic and social-emotional growth, steady progress toward high school completion, and readiness for post-secondary experiences of their choosing.

Equitable School Facilities

  • We are committed to judiciously using all available resources to achieve equitable facilities for all Inglewood students.
  • We are committed to providing all students with access to school facilities that inspire them to innovate, dream, and become the leaders they are destined to become.

Our Core Beliefs

  1. We believe that every Inglewood student has the potential to achieve at high levels when instruction and educational supports meet their needs.
  2. We believe that a student’s background, condition, and circumstances should not be predictors of their progress and success.
  3. We believe that parents/caregivers are critical partners in each student’s learning.
  4. We believe that we must mobilize and align the intentions, talents, energy, and skills of teachers, parents, staff, and community members in order for Inglewood to become exemplary – a district of choice.
  5. We believe that clean, safe, well-equipped classrooms and schools are essential for effective teaching and learning.
  6. We believe that we must promote continuous learning as a districtwide expectation, and must invest continuously in the professional growth of ALL our employees.
  7. We believe that we must be transparent about our decision-making processes, and must act as sound stewards of the public’s resources and investments in our schools.

High School Pathways

High School Pathways

The District offers different pathway programs at each of our high schools. Because IUSD has open enrollment, students may select which pathway program they would like at any one of the high schools, and then attend that school. Examples of Pathways include Legal and Government, Engineering and Design, and Food Service and Hospitality. We encourage you to visit each high school page to find out what pathways they offer.
