Beverly Hills Unified School District opened 2020-21 enrollment during Public Schools Week, Feb. 24-28.
Nine out of 10 students in the United States attend public schools, meaning more than 50 million students are served by the country’s public education system, and Public Schools Week celebrates public school achievements, student accomplishments, never-ending teacher dedication and every education advocate.
BHUSD serves over 3,560 students in grades TK-12. BHUSD offers two elementary schools for grades TK-5, Hawthorne and Horace Mann, plus one under construction, El Rodeo. BHUSD also has one consolidated middle school for grades 6-8, Beverly Vista Middle School, and one high school for grades 9-12, Beverly Hills High School. Additionally, BHUSD has one continuation high school, Moreno High School.
The public education system does not have barriers, and BHUSD schools are open to every child who lives in Beverly Hills, regardless of ability, language, country of origin, needs or wealth. There is a misconception that all BHUSD students come from wealthy families. In fact, 17.3% of BHUSD students are socioeconomically disadvantaged.
The district continues to achieve 20% higher test results than charter schools and the California state average.
The newly opened consolidated middle school offers 44 middle school electives, and the entire district offers technological devices for each student, from their littlest learners in TK with iPads right up to laptops in 12th grade.
BHUSD is a true community-based district, with over 1,467 PTA members. Each school works hand in hand with parents on a daily basis.
