About Wiseburn USD
Welcome to the Wiseburn Unified School District, a vibrant and diverse K-12 educational district in the heart of Los Angeles County. We proudly serve the communities of Hollyglen, Del Aire, Wiseburn, and part of El Segundo, fostering a commitment to academic excellence, social responsibility, and personal growth in our student population.
Established in the early 20th century, the Wiseburn Unified School District has a long-standing tradition of providing quality education. Our journey through the decades reflects our adaptability and resilience, peaking at 2,900 pupils in the 1960s, weathering a decline to 1,100 in the 1980s, and then rebounding to currently serve nearly 4,500 students across four district schools, two programs, and five independent charter schools.
