A Message from the Assistant Superintendent of Educational Services
Welcome to Educational Services!
This division provides the full spectrum of educational opportunities to our 41 schools.
Our Child Development Department provides services to children from infancy through pre-school and has won the prestigious Golden Bell Award for its outstanding use of technology to introduce our littlest learners how to read and write. Transitional Kindergarten is offered at 13 sites and prepares our students for success when entering Kindergarten. We offer Full-Day Kindergarten at every school.
Our elementary schools offer students wide opportunities to learn and develop their own individual strengths. We have Cortez Science and Magnet School and La Verne Science and Technology Charter. There are classes and clubs in Robotics, Art, Dance, Computer Science and Coding. Our district has a phase-in 1:1 initiative that provides Chromebooks to each student, offering a blended learning environment.
Elementary schools offer Dual-Language Immersion programs in English/Mandarin Chinese and English/Spanish. Our elementary and middle schools have also won state and national awards for their Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports (PBIS) programs to promote good citizenship and a positive and welcoming school atmosphere.
By middle school and high school, students are actively introduced to a broad array of options, beginning with our National Academy Foundation schools – Fremont Academy of Engineering and Design (7-12), Palomares Academy of Health Sciences (7-12), and Village Academy (9-12) focusing on Computer Science and Film. Palomares is a “Distinguished” NAF school providing students with the option of training in medical and other health science careers including a mentorship with Western University that supports students from grades 6 through 12, and into college and graduate school. These academies are a powerful option for students already focused on a career goal and who want to experience professional workshops, internships, and guided field trips led by experts in their field of choice.
Students who prefer a traditional high school experience can attend any one of our four comprehensive high schools – Diamond Ranch, Ganesha, Garey, and Pomona. Not only are the traditional athletic programs available – football, volleyball, tennis, etc., but there are also pathway programs supporting careers ranging from Law, Accounting, Fire Science, Graphic Design, Automotive and Childcare, to Hospitality and many others. We offer mentoring programs across every high school in the district. Each year PUSD high schools are listed among The Best High Schools in the Nation by U.S. News and World Report.
Qualified students who graduate from PUSD are guaranteed admission to California State Polytechnic University (Cal Poly Pomona) and to the University of La Verne through our TRANSFERmation program. We also offer students dual-graduation programs where they can earn college credits alongside their high school classes. Our students visit college campuses and our graduates are now enrolled in the nation’s top universities, from UC Berkeley, to Stanford, from Harvard to Princeton and Yale.
Whatever your student may dream of becoming, PUSD has classes to support them and help make those dreams come true.
