Future United States Citizens

Twelve students, representing five countries,†from Judy Remele's Adult Education Citizenship Class are ready to take their naturalization test. The students have been studying for the past eight weeks to learn† US History, Civics, and US Geography. Additionally, the students practiced reading, writing, and†interviewing skills; and listened to guest speakers from US Immigration Services†as well as a new US citizen who shared about her naturalization experience.

Good luck to these excellent students. The United States will be a better†country with them as†citizens.

About Our District
Yucaipa-Calimesa JUSD has been proudly serving students in Yucaipa and portions of Calimesa since 1911, when our first elementary school was opened on California Street as part of the newly formed Yucaipa Elementary School District. In 1963, the District reorganized as a Joint Unified School District and added instruction for the areaís secondary school students, who were previously served by a neighboring school district using a secondary school they built in the 1950's. That school, which is located on Sixth Street, is still in use today by our students.

YCJUSD students receive a high quality curriculum from some of the best teachers that the state has to offer. The districtís CAASPP test results regularly exceed those of the county of San Bernardino and, in many instances, those of the state as well. Each school has an active PTA/PTSA or PTSO, and area residents find that the collaboration among parents and school staff has a wonderful, open, small town feel to it. Students at all sites, including the adult school, follow the same calendar. The calendar for the current school year, including all holidays, vacation dates, and academic dates, is found under the "Calendars" tab on the left navigation bar on all of our web pages.

Textbooks, curriculum, and assessments across the district are consistent from school to school. This is helpful when students move between schools. Parents can be assured that there wonít be learning gaps for their students and that the education that children get at one site is as rigorous as it is in the neighboring schools. As new students enroll in the district, every effort is made to place them in their neighborhood school according to the boundary maps. If the grade needed is full at the neighborhood school, an alternate school site will be assigned until there is room available at the neighborhood school.

Beginning in 2011-2012, the Competitive Edge Charter Academy (CECA) operates as a dependent charter school. CECA is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme World School and the Middle Years Programme is an International Baccalaureate candidate school. All California content standards are included in the thematic-based instruction.
