    educate the mind and encourage the heart and spirit of every individual.

     Our school community is safe, respectful, responsible, and kind!


    We Need Your Input!

    Mt. Diablo Unified School District is embarking on an effort to create a Facilities Master Plan. This plan identifies short-term and long-term goals in providing updates to school facilities district-wide. The information gathered in this questionnaire will provide the District's Facilities Department with a more thorough understanding of the perceived conditions of the schools within their district.
    The following survey is designed to take approximately 5 minutes to complete. Optional comment sections are provided if you choose
    to utilize them. We thank you in advance for your participation!
    If you have any questions about the survey or the master planning process, you may contact Rose Ramos, Chief Business Officer at

    From our PFC: Help our 5th graders go to camp! Outdoor Education is a four-day, offsite field trip that is planned each year for 5th graders. The camp teaches a hands-on science curriculum and social skills, and provides a taste of the responsibility and independence students will need when they advance to middle school. Outdoor education is a fun, enriching experience that kids look forward to, and that they will never forget!
