Welcome to the Manhattan Beach Unified School District Educational Services Department. The curriculum and instruction in MBUSD are intended to cultivate intellectually curious and independent learners. The District's outstanding teaching and professional staff provide students with a comprehensive, rigorous, and relevant Preschool-12 curriculum. In addition to oversight of curriculum and instruction, the Educational Services Department is responsible for staff development, student assessment, categorical funding, selection of instructional materials, state and federal accountability, library services, gifted and talented services, special education, and English language development, as well as the facilitation of various community partnerships. We strive to support students, parents, and educators throughout each student's Preschool-12 educational experience in the District.
