About Our District
Adelanto Elementary School District (AESD) is a 15 campus TK-8th grade school district headquartered in Adelanto, CA. AESD serves students in the City of Adelanto (eight schools), in Northwest and South neighborhoods of the City of Victorville (five schools), and in the unincorporated community of El Mirage (County Service Area 70 - one school).
AESD has three middle schools, two K-8 campuses, nine elementary campuses, and an independent study program. Our district offers Transitional Kindergarten, magnet school programs, a dual-immersion campus, STEM/STEAM instruction, afterschool programs, athletics, and extracurricular programs. Special Education services are offered at each site.
In 1941, Adelanto School District was established to support the educational needs of the families from the newly opened George Air Force Base. The first schools were Harold H. George Elementary School and Harry R. Sheppard Middle School. Additional campuses were built around Adelanto starting with Adelanto Elementary School in the 1950s, as well as the former site of Adelanto Middle School (now demolished). Additional campuses were constructed in the population boom from the 1970-1990s. The current day District Office was constructed from the frame of the prior one in 2008, and the district was renamed Adelanto Elementary School District upon completion of the building.
