Corona Norco Unified School District Logo

Located about an hour southeast from Los Angeles, Corona Norco Unified School District (CNUSD) serves over 53,000 students in the diverse communities of Corona, Norco and Eastvale. It’s the largest school district in Riverside County and the tenth largest district in California. With its combination of rigorous academics and focus on social emotional learning, CNUSD is a model example of education for the “whole child”.

A growing and distinctly diverse district, CNUSD prides itself on building a community that is much like a family. Diversity is recognized as a strength and a valuable resource that is accepted and respected. This culture of support, caring, and collaboration exists at all levels—from the district leadership, to teachers and school staff, to parents.

CNUSD teachers set high expectations for students while fostering an environment of continuous learning for one another. The district’s new teacher induction program has been awarded the recognition of a CA state model of how to support teachers early in their careers.

District Initiatives

  • Closing the achievement gap. Rigorous academics focus on college and career readiness as well as improving access to AP courses for all students.
  • Providing relevant career and technical education for life readiness. A variety of hands-on courses prepare students for their future in school and professions.
  • Building meaningful relationships through parent and student engagement. At CNUSD, school is more than a place students go to learn. It becomes a family and community to support them - and their families - in being prepared for life.
