Welcome to the Manhattan Beach Unified School District Educational Services Department. Curriculum and instruction in MBUSD is intended to cultivate intellectually curious and independent learners. The District's outstanding teaching and professional staff provide students with a comprehensive, rigorous, and relevant K-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, 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 K-12 educational experience in the District.
