Superintendent's Message

On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to welcome you to the Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District (PYLUSD) website.
PYLUSD inspires all students through rigorous and relevant educational experiences that empower them to become responsible, ethical, and contributing citizens. Located in Orange County, Calif., PYLUSD serves residents of Placentia, Yorba Linda, and parts of Anaheim, Brea, and Fullerton. The district educates approximately 23,500 students at 34 award-winning K-12 public schools.
The school district dates back to 1874. A one-room schoolhouse was established by pioneers who–with bravery, hard work, and perseverance–paved the way for one of the finest education systems in Southern California. In 1989, the Placentia Unified School District and the Yorba Linda School District merged to become the present-day Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District.
Today, PYLUSD has a richly deserved reputation for providing outstanding educational opportunities for all students. This has not come about by happenstance, but through a steadfast resolve to being a dynamic and supportive learning community that prepares each and every student for success now – and in the future.
I trust that this website will provide you with the information you need to become familiar with our schools and district. You are also invited to contact me, the Board of Education, or district leadership about any matter that you wish to discuss. We can each be reached at 714-986-7000.
Thank you for your interest in the PYLUSD family. Welcome!
