The district includes forty-eight elementary schools, ten intermediate schools, eight high schools, two special education schools, and two continuation schools.

It was formed in July 1965 from the merger of three districts: the Garden Grove Elementary School District (established 1875[4]), the Alamitos School District (1880s) and the Garden Grove Union High School District (1921).

In 2004, the district received the Broad Prize for Urban Education. Twice before, it had been a Broad Prize finalist.[5]

In 2016, the district received 1st in Mathematics for the statewide SBAC, and 2nd in ELA behind San Francisco.

In 2017, the GGUSD Board of Education announced that it would launch its Vietnamese dual immersion program the following year at John Murdy Elementary School, becoming the fourth school district in the United States to do so.[6]

The district superintendent is Dr. Gabriela Mafi.[7]
