Pleasant Grove Joint Union School District
Top of PageWelcome to Pleasant Grove School

The Pleasant Grove Joint Union School District (PGJUSD) is a single-school district that opened in the late 1800s on Howsley Road in Pleasant Grove. PGJUSD serves up to 220 students from transitional kindergarten through eighth grade for the surrounding communities.

Many of our students' parents, grandparents and even some of our staff members, attended school here. We enjoy the benefits of being a central part of this close-knit, multi-generational farming community.

Although we have strong roots in the past, we are an educational progressive, high-quality school. We value strong fundamental, standards-based education while employing innovative, engaging teaching techniques to meet each student's learning needs and styles. Our vision is one of educational excellence and continuous learning for all.

Pleasant Grove students and staff all work hard and expect a lot of each other. Due to our small size, we are able to provide a unique educational experience.  We were excited to have our hard work recognized by being named a California Distinguished School in 2008 and again in 2014, as well as receiving the Title 1 Academic Achievement Award.

Pleasant Grove School is pleased to announce that we have been named a 2014 California Distinguished School. The California Distinguished School Award identifies and honors those schools that have demonstrated educational excellence for all students and progress in narrowing the achievement gap.  We are proud to be recognized for the dedication, hard work, and consistent focus on excellence on the part of our students, staff, and community.  The positive progress is reflection of a great deal of diligence on the part of many people who believe that success is the result of purposeful commitment toward a common goal.

We are excited to announce that in addition to receiving the 2014 California Distinguished School Award, we are also receiving the Title I Academic Achievement Award.

The Title I Academic Achievement Award is given to schools receiving federal Title I funds as authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Title I, the single largest federal educational program for K-12 public education, assists schools in meeting the educational needs of students living at or below the poverty line. Of the approximately 10,000 schools in California, more than 6,000 of them participate in the Title I program, 106 schools received this award.

To receive this distinction, the school must demonstrate that all students are making significant progress toward proficiency on California's academic content standards. Additionally, the school's socioeconomically disadvantaged students must have doubled the achievement targets set for them for two consecutive years.

Congratulations Students & Staff our API is 889! You are all amazing!! All your hard work paid off!


The API Report is required by the state's Public Schools Accountability Act (PSAA) of 1999. This report shows how much a school is improving from year to year based on its API. A school's API is a number that ranges from 200 to 1000 and is calculated from the results for each school's students on statewide tests. The state has set 800 as the API target for all schools to meet. Schools that fall short of 800 are required to meet annual growth targets until that goal is achieved. API targets vary for each school.
