The Pleasanton Unified School District continues to be one of the highest performing districts in California. Our exceptional reputation is based on our continued stellar academic achievement, innovative programs, emphasis on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, award winning visual and performing arts, strong career technical education, competitive athletic programs, focus on character education, involved parents, and community engagement. Pleasanton Unified School District will continue to thrive and inspire students because of a committed group of education professionals who genuinely care about students’ academic success and well–being as well as strong support from our parents and the community at large.
In addition to our phenomenal achievement as measured by STAR, our students, teachers and schools are recipients of many grants, awards and accolades. They are provided a rigorous and relevant curriculum and a variety of options as seen in our PUSD Brochure 2013-14.
To what do we attribute our tremendous growth? We believe that all students can reach their greatest potential and it is our responsibility to awaken and support that passion through a systemic approach. We do this by reflecting on our instructional practices on an ongoing basis. As indicated in our newly adopted Strategic Plan, “All students regardless of race, ethnicity, socio economic status and gender will be proficient or advanced and college/career ready upon graduation.” We believe in systemic change that is results-oriented and focuses on the individual needs of students.
PUSD & Our Supporters
The quality of our schools is one of most important reasons families move to Pleasanton. The City of Pleasanton is the place to be; a vibrant community in which to live, work, and educate children. We are extremely fortunate to have the strong support of our parent community through PTAs, PFCs, School Site Council, Boosters, Pleasanton Partnerships in Education (PPIE) and Pleasanton Schools Educational Enrichment (PSEE).
We value our relationship with the City of Pleasanton, the Chamber of Commerce, and our local Rotary groups. The strong and generous support from our regional partners, such as the Valley Care Health Care Systems, the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Chevron, Wells Fargo Bank and Fremont Bank make it possible for our district to offer innovative programs and exceptional support services to our students.
I am extremely proud of our students’ extraordinary achievement, our staff’s continued focus on every child, and our Governing Board’s commitment to the highest quality of education for all students in Pleasanton.
