The Galt Joint Union Elementary School District serves approximately 3,800 students in preschool through eighth grade. The GJUESD implements higher level instruction through a vision to Grow and Learn Together with a goal to inspire learners - one plan at a time. The elementary district operates one school readiness center, five elementary schools and one middle school and is recognized as a 2018 California Exemplary District for Sacramento County. Every student has a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) to support academic growth, achievement, talent development, and career aspirations.


Every K-8 school operates libraries as Bright Future Learning Centers (BFLCs) open after school and year round for learning, career education, research, and enrichment. BFLC clubs or learning academies include robotics, coding, culinary arts, and horsemastership. The district has exceptional learning partners including San Joaquin Delta College, California State University Sacramento, Stanford University, Cosumnes River Nature Preserve, NASA and the Central Valley Foundation. The elementary district is one of ten California districts selected for early instruction supporting the Next Generation Science Standards for kindergarten through grade eight. Every school supports a music program with choir and band options.
