Welcome to Owens Valley Unified School District!

Home of the Cubs!


The Owens Valley Unified School District is located in Independence, CA, nestled between the Eastern Sierra and White Mountain Ranges. We believe that balanced education provides an opportunity for students to be self-sufficient, active, productive, and responsible members of society.  Every staff member in the Owens Valley Unified School District is committed to providing students the tools to explore and achieve their potential, to take responsibility for their own learning, and to recognize that learning is a lifelong process.  We provide a stimulating, secure, and imaginative environment which fosters learning, self-esteem, and independent thinking. At OV, kids truly come first.

Thank you, OV community for your support at our BBQ Fundraiser on December 4!

‘Tis the season…to rock those holiday sweaters, OV!

Join the fun with 12 Days of Festive Sweaters, every school day between December 6 and December 12! Wear your ugly, fun, or festive sweaters to celebrate the season.
