About AUSD

Alameda's public schools have been educating Alameda’s children since 1855, when the Schermerhorn School was built on Court Street between Van Buren and Jackson Street. Today, AUSD serves the needs of some 9600 students from pre-school through high school. Those students reflect the diversity of our community and the San Francisco Bay Area region, with 36% being Asian, 29% white, 16% Hispanic, 8% Black/African American, and 9% of two or more races. About 27% of our students are low income and 17% are English learners.
