Welcome To Waukena School

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 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. We will provide students with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and experiences they need to contribute to and participate in our society.


The Waukena Joint Union Elementary School Districts vision is to inspire students to become innovative, collaborative, and constructive citizens who embrace diversity, value education and honesty, develop a strong work ethic and a sense of responsibility that challenges them to be leaders in global society.
