About Us


Berryessa Union School District is located in the heart of Silicon Valley, nestled against the northeast foothills in San Jose, California. The District serves a community of approximately 45,000 homes and has almost 8,100 students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade. More than 800 certificated and classified Berryessa employees work daily at 10 elementary schools and three middle schools as teachers, administrators, and other support staff.

Challenging educational programs, standards based curriculum, and a strong commitment to excellence produce high pupil achievement. Our pupils master relevant skills and consistently score above average on state and national tests. Our students attend high school in the East Side Union High School District.

Representing a beautiful spectrum of ethnic and cultural backgrounds, Berryessa pupils experience a well-coordinated curriculum that reflects the commitment to helping each student achieve her/his potential and interests. Support for all of our students gives each student the opportunity to be a successful learner. We also provide specialized programs in instrumental and choral music, the arts, and physical education and sports.
 
We have a proud tradition of success for all students and encourage you to browse our site for information about programs and successes.
