A portrait of Carl Coles
As we enter April, students and educators across Bonita Unified are deeply engaged in rigorous instruction to culminate a year of learning.
For our high school juniors, it’s been an opportunity to focus on college readiness as they tackled the SAT – funded for the first time entirely by Bonita Unified. That action, aimed at ensuring equity of opportunity, helped to boost SAT participation rates to record levels.
At Gladstone Elementary, kindergartners celebrated a milestone in March – the 50th Kindergarten Circus.
BUSD realizes that many students need more than academic support.  Social and emotional wellness is equally important.  That’s why we’re very pleased to announce that we will be expanding student mental health services in the 2019-20 school year. 
Spring is upon us and we are gearing up for graduation.  As I visit school sites, I’m excited to see students engaged and learning.  We are on a pace to finish the end of the year on a strong note.
