The Garden Grove Unified School District (GGUSD) is the 14th largest school district in the state of California[1]. GGUSD includes boundaries in Anaheim, Cypress, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Santa Ana, Stanton, and Westminster.

GGUSD includes forty-seven elementary schools, ten intermediate schools, seven high schools, two continuation schools and two special education schools.

GGUSD was formed in July 1965 from the merger of three districts, the Garden Grove Elementary School District (established 1874), the Alamitos School District (1880s) and the Garden Grove Union High School District (1921).

In 2004, GGUSD received the Broad Prize for Urban Education. Twice before, the district had been a Broad Prize finalist.[2]

In 2016, GGUSD received 1st in Mathematics for the statewide SBAC, and 2nd in ELA behind San Francisco.

In 2017, the GGUSD Board of Education announced that it would launch their Vietnamese dual immersion program the following year at John Murdy Elementary School, becoming the 2nd school district in the state of California to do so after the Westminster School District[3].

The current superintendent of GGUSD is Gabriela Mafi.[4]
