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, explore and form lasting relationships in our classrooms. 

We serve approximately 3,500 students in Transitional Kindergarten through grade 8 across four elementary schools, one comprehensive middle school, and the newest addition to our District, Steindorf K-8 STEAM 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 and 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, with innovative programs exposing students to the arts, music, wellness and technology so that students are free to explore their passions.
  • Ongoing professional learning opportunities to ensure that our world-class staff have 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. 

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