College & Career Ready

The Dysart Unified School District is focused on raising the relevance and rigor of education.  Ensuring students are equipped with the skills necessary to meet the challenges and opportunities in a 21st century global society are at the heart of the mission and vision.  The goal is to graduate all students ready for college, career and a productive life in this new century. Dysart is dedicated to going beyond providing preschool through grade 12 students with just the educational basics. To accomplish this, the district must work collaboratively with all stakeholders and actively involve parents and community members as partners.
