Welcome To Waukena School

Our mission is to fully prepare all students for high school and then for either the work world or college in a society that is increasingly dependent on technology.

About Us

Welcome to all parents and guardians, students, community, staff members and our many alumni of Waukena Joint Union Elementary School District. As a rural single-school district, Waukena Joint Union Elementary School District covers approximately 50 square miles and serves 200-225 students in grades K-8. Our income base is largely agricultural, with strong economic influence from the dairy industry. Our school provides a complete curriculum in the areas of language arts, mathematics, history and science. We rely on standards-based instruction and data-driven assessments to ensure academic growth of our students. Despite our small school size, Waukena Elementary, due to being a member of Tulare County small school’s consortium, is able to engage our students in many positive and character-building competitions in the areas of academics and athletics.

Our Achievements

During the previous state testing model, we achieved Safe Harbor in all subgroups. Under California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), our dedicated teachers and staff, supportive school board, and students continue to strive for academic excellence. We have scored very competitively with similar schools on the CAASPP, and look to continue our improvement. *The progress bars show the percent of students who met or exceeded the standard in ELA and math.
