San Diego Unified School District welcomes newly arrived refugee students and families who enhance the vibrant diversity of our schools. 

Across the US, refugees and other immigrants are strengthening American communities.  These individuals represent the very resilience that defines us as Americans, and our common desire to make a better life ourselves and our families.  Our communities are enriched by the new businesses that refugee entrepreneurs are opening, and by the global perspectives and cultural vitality that newcomers add to schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. - See more at: http://www.welcomingrefugees.org/about-project#sthash.DYm06lgN.dpuf
