A Smooth Transition with Downey Unified

Exploring Passions and Talents

Transitioning from elementary school to middle school can be challenging and a little scary for students. It’s a big step! At Downey Unified, we ease our students into the next phase of their education with a welcoming atmosphere and by building excitement for all of the new opportunities our middle school campuses provide. Our variety of clubs, electives, athletics and art options encourage students to discover and foster new interests and talents.

At Downey Unified, we go above and beyond…

1:1 iPad Initiative

Each student in middle school takes home a DUSD iPad for continuity in learning at home and on campus.

Elective Pathway Opportunities

Our students have the opportunity to elect pathways that lead straight into the high school programs. These include robust AVID and CTE programs.

Award-Winning Schools

Doty and Griffiths Middle School have earned the Gold Ribbon Award, Title I Academic Achieving School Award, and Schools to Watch Award. Stauffer Middle School has also received the Schools to Watch award.

State-of-the-Art Modern Facilities

Thanks to the community support of Measure O, our middle schools are being renovated to include state-of-the-art technology and first-rate facilities.
