Preparing College and Career Ready Graduates

Our Vision for Student Success

Fresno Unified is committed to preparing college and career ready graduates.  To achieve this level of readiness, every student can and must learn at grade level and beyond.  We have a deliberate, intentional culture of learning with high expectations where every day, every educator and every student seeks to learn and strives for growth.  We support and challenge each other to stay focused on what matters most: ensuring that in every classroom our students are tackling relevant, challenging content, taking ownership for their learning and improving every day. ​
