Discover your school options


Sacramento City Unified School District is the 10th largest public K-12 district in California and one of the oldest in the western United States (established in 1854). SCUSD serves 43,000 students on 76 campuses, which include quality neighborhood schools and sought-after specialty programs.

As an open enrollment district, parents have many choices for the children’s education. 

Find your neighborhood school


Elementary, middle, and high school students are assigned to a designated neighborhood school based on where the student lives, as long as the school offers the services the student needs.

Each neighborhood school has a defined geographic boundary and is intended to serve the students who live within that geographic boundary.

To determine your child’s school of attendance based on school boundary, please call the Enrollment Center personnel at (916) 643-2400 or use one of the tools below.
