San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District has a long history in the beautiful redwoods of the Santa Cruz Mountains above the blue expanse of the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary. The area served by the district is one of forested mountains adjacent to the San Lorenzo River which meanders through our valley. The District extends 17 miles north of Santa Cruz, south of Los Gatos, east of Bonny Doon and west of Scotts Valley. The schools of the San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District serve as focal points of the communities along the river. The three main, but small, towns of Felton, Ben Lomond and Boulder Creek consist of small business areas surrounded by residential areas.
Students attend their local elementary school through fifth grade at either San Lorenzo Valley Elementary or Boulder Creek Elementary. Secondary years are spent at SLV Middle School and SLV High School. In addition, students have the choice of attending our SLVUSD Charter School.
