About Covina-Valley Unified
For more than a century, Covina-Valley Unified School District has served the communities of Covina, West Covina, Glendora, San Dimas, and Irwindale. Covina-Valley schools provide the personalized service and caring culture of a small school district, where teachers and administrators know their students by name.
Each year, our graduates earn in excess of $1 million in scholarships. Due to the high academic standing of Covina-Valley students, more than half of all graduates meet or exceed the admission requirements for the California State and University of California systems.
We provide a strong basic education underscoring reading, writing, language arts, math, science, social science, and technology which is aligned with the California Department of Education standards. Moreover, each campus offers leadership, curricular, and athletics/sports opportunities. A broad array of support services is available to children, adults, and families.
An extensive arts program begins in elementary school, providing students with a well-rounded education. Our athletic teams garner California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Championships and are consistently ranked among the best in the region.
Each school enjoys high parent participation - active PTA and booster organizations. Community residents and local businesses serve as classroom volunteers, providing in-kind prizes to motivate and recognize student achievement and to underwrite important school events.
