Family University is a respectful and all-inclusive platform to engage families as equal partners to improve student achievement for brighter futures.

Our vision is to ensure a safe, welcoming and diverse environment that nurtures growth and development for life-long leaders. In all our pursuits, we strive to build community; bridging partnerships between families, school and district.

Family University offers workshops and classes to empower our families to learn and grow with your students. Topics include math, literacy, ESL, technology, and many more! In addition to workshops and classes, as a Family University member—you can take your involvement to the next level by participating in any of the following committees and activities:
