San Ramon Unified School District Top Ranked in California

San Ramon Unified Schools Top Ranked in CaliforniaAs a local relator in the San Ramon Valley, a topic of conversation that comes up regularly is the school district. I speak with families all the time who want to move here because San Ramon Valley Unified is so highly rated, and has such a great reputation. Most of the credit for this high level of excellence goes to the wonderful teachers, and staff in the schools and the district, who work very hard to provide the best possible education for our children.

This high level of educational excellence was recently reflected with a very high ranking on the website With over 35 schools in the district and an annual budget over $250M San Ramon Unified School District (SRVUSD) came in 20th out of 378 eligible school districts according to Niche’s ranking criteria.

As one of 18 school districts in Contra Costa County, San Ramon is home to two top ranking high-schools: Dougherty Valley High School and San Ramon Valley High School. Each school also earned top rankings, coming it at 11th and 73rd, respectively in California. It wasn’t just the high schools that ranked well, the elementary and middle schools within SRVUSD ranked high, too.

It’s important to recognize that school districts don’t become so highly rated on their own. They need the constant support and involvement from parents and the community. Credit also needs to be given to the parents, families and community members who take the time to be involved in our children’s education.

The top rated education is icing on the cake that contributes to the City of San Ramon’s popularity in places to live. Low crime, proximity to San Francisco, and access to outdoor activities.

I am very thankful to live in such a strong community, and I appreciate of all the effort and hard work that has contributed to making SRVUSD one of the best.
