San Juan Unified School District

The San Juan Unified School District is a large district north of the American River and east of the Twin Rivers Unified School District. The District has over 300,000 residents. It stretches from some eastern neighborhoods of the City of Sacramento north and eastwards towards to the Placer County line and the Folsom-Cordova School District. There are five elected School Board Members. Despite the District’s size and geographic differences, the Board Members serve at-large at present, rather than by-district. That situation is subject to change*.

UPDATE: On 07/28/2021 the Board voted to move to a 7-member, by-district board as of the November 2022 election.

The San Juan Unified School District serves unincorporated Arden Arcade with 12 elementary schools, 2 middle schools and 3 high schools as well as a Montessori School (Cottage), a fundamental middle school (Arcade) and a fundamental high school (El Camino) that are open to all residents of the District.
