"Ensuring Access to Quality Education"

Hacienda La Puente Unified School District (HLPUSD) is a leader in building the foundation that students need to become successful scholars.  Our District serves a very diverse student population, from Transitional Kindergarten to Adult Education and one of our main priorities continues to be ensuring inclusion and access to quality education for every student that walks into our district. In fact, HLPUSD is one of only 130 school districts in the entire country being recognized for creating opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students.

We are very proud of the continues success of our schools, two of which have been designated as National Blue Ribbon Schools, 13 Gold Ribbon Schools, and three high schools that have been honored in the U.S. News and World Report among the best high schools in the nation.

Our District continues to provide students with innovative programs such as our award-winning dual immersion programs that offer students the opportunity to take classes and learn in four languages.  The District also operates the second largest adult education program in the state, currently serving over 14,000 students and offering career development in programs that range from culinary arts to certified nursing assistant, automotive repair, and more.

We are proud of the positive impact we have on our students' lives.  It would not be possible without the hard work of our students, their teachers, administrators, and support staff members.  There is a lot in store for 2018 and we look forward to continuing to provide the highest quality of education, while prioritizing access and inclusion for all.
