A Bright Beginning with Downey Unified

We offer our students the best… because they deserve the best.

The decisions you make for your child’s education today affect their success tomorrow — even at this very young age. At Downey Unified, our goal is simple. We want to spark an interest in education which will last your child a lifetime!

All Downey Unified Elementary Schools focus on the following:

21 CLC

TK-5 students utilize iPads for creation, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication daily integrated with all curriculum. ALL students will be in a 1:1 iPad environment for the school year.

Robotics

There are robotic classes available at all sites. In the spring, there is a district-wide event called, “Robolympics” where students apply everything they learned throughout the year to compete!

Innovation Labs

TK-5 grade students have access to:

  • Computer Science/Coding
  • Green screen
  • Spheros
  • VEX
  • Dash and Dot
  • Ozobots
  • 3-D print design

STEAM Instruction

Students are not only exposed to coding and STEM design, but they are also immersed in art with “Meet the Master’s” art instruction.

Student Leadership

Students are encouraged to grow personally as well as academically. Student Council, CHARACTER COUNCIL, and Tech Squad allow students opportunities to learn leadership skills.

Additional District Opportunities

  • Transitional Kindergarten at every site
  • GATE program opportunity available in grades 4 and 5
