• Cambrian School District has deep roots in our corner of the Silicon Valley dating back more than 100 years. Our District has become established as the bedrock of the Cambrian neighborhood, as generations of students have come to learn, grow, and explore.

    We serve approximately 3,125 students in Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade across four elementary schools, one comprehensive middle school, and Steindorf K-8 STEAM Magnet school. Across all of our schools and grade levels, our staff shares a commitment to excellence and continuous growth. Hallmarks of our approach to teaching and learning include:

    • Seamless integration of California's Common Core Standards
    • A relentless pursuit of student achievement
    • A focus on the "4 Cs": critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity 
    • An unwavering commitment to nurturing the whole child
    • Innovative programs exposing students to the arts, music, wellness, and technology 
    • Ongoing professional learning opportunities to ensure that our world-class staff has the knowledge and resources they need to continue honing their craft as educators
    • Warm school communities where families and neighbors are welcome and vital participants in student life both in and out of the classroom

    The 2021-22 school year will begin for students on Thursday, August 19. 2021. Though our school year is finished for the 2020-21 year, we were thrilled to welcome our students back for in-person instruction last March. Our team worked diligently to create safe, engaging learning spaces for our students at each of our six school sites. Children continued to be challenged, whether in-person or online, with informed instruction and outstanding educators. We also continued to teach a portion of our student population online through our Virtual School Program (VSP). VSP is a robust community of students learning an excellent curriculum through distance learning. 

    Together, Cambrian students, staff, and families are exploring infinite possibilities for learning, and we invite you to be a part of our journey.
