A Bright Beginning with Downey Unified

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

We hope you’ll join us at our Elementary Education Expo so you can see for yourself why families like yours choose Downey Unified. The decisions you make for your child’s education today affect their success tomorrow — even at this very young age. It’s never easy to weigh options when it comes to your child’s future. Our expo will give you a first-hand look at how Downey Unified’s programs set your child up for success from the start. 

Join us for a presentation about our sought-after programs and their benefits from 6:00 pm to 6:20 pm in the Board Room. After the presentation, our own students will give live demonstrations from some of the programs, including:

  • Robotics and Tech Demonstrations
  • Meet the Masters Art Projects
  • Carnival of Champions display
  • Downey Foundation for Educational Opportunities

At Downey Unified, our goal is simple. We want to spark an interest in education which will last your child a lifetime!
