About Us

The Torrance Unified School District consists of 17 elementary, 8 middle, 4 high schools, and 1 continuation and 1 alternative high school. The District also has 3 adult school campuses.

TUSD was established in 1947 and unified in 1948. Torrance Unified School District is nestled in the heart of the South Bay, in the south-western part of Los Angeles County. TUSD is bordered by the Palos Verdes Peninsula on the south, the beach cities - Redondo, Hermosa, and Manhattan Beach - to the west, and cities of Lawndale and Hawthorne to the north. The District serves the entire City of Torrance and is governed by five school board members.

Mission Statement:

The Torrance Unified School District strives to ensure that each and every student is educated and prepared to succeed in life. We are dedicated to maximizing individual potential and developing lifelong learners who will be contributing members in a global society.
