Welcome to: 
     Ripon Unified School District

The Ripon Unified School District is committed to excellence and a quality education for all students. Our District is committed to lower class sizes at all grade levels and has a coordinated and articulated program from kindergarten through high school. There is a high level of parent and community involvement in the schools. A high level of support for the educational program is evident in the level of community-based financial support as well as donations of time and effort.


Students are served by five K-8 elementary schools (self-contained at all grade levels), one comprehensive high school and one continuation high school.   


Due to distance learning, meals will be provided for Ripon USD students via Grab and Go service at all school sites, except for Harvest High School.

Details available at the Nutritional Services page, or by clicking on the flyer to the left.

Thank you so much for your generous donations and the SJCOE for organizing the event!
