Muroc Joint Unified School District is a K-12 unified school system of approximately 2000 students, located in the Mojave Desert approximately 110 miles northeast of Los Angeles. It was founded as an elementary school in 1911, with one teacher and less than a dozen students. The school house was located at Edwards. Boron students were bussed to the air base for their education. As the area became more populated, another school was established in 1929, in Boron. The schools became a unified district in 1953, encompassing 578 square miles in Kern and San Bernardino counties.
The District serves the communities of Boron, North Edwards and Edwards Air Force Base, and maintains four school sites: two comprehensive junior-senior high schools and two K-6 elementary schools. We are proud that several of our schools have been awarded "California Distinguished School" status.
Muroc students are a continual source of pride. From the early mining and flight test eras to today, they have earned top awards in everything from leadership and scholarship, to sports and fine arts. Over the years, several of our students have returned as fully credentialed teachers, to teach with sincere concern in the district and the area where they grew up.
