Congratulations Students & Staff our API is 889! You are all amazing!! All your hard work paid off!
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.
Welcome to Pleasant Grove School
Pleasant Grove is a single-school district that opened in the late 1800s. Many of our students' 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 a forward-thinking, high-quality school. We value strong fundamental, Standards-based education while employing innovative, engaging teaching techniques to meet the variety of learning needs and styles we encounter. Our vision is one of excellence in action and continuous learning for all of us.
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 and ensure that all staff members perform at their best, no matter what their role. We were excited to have our hard work recognized by being named a California Distinguished School in 2008.

LOOK WHAT'S NEW - TRANSITIONAL KINDERGARTEN
California's children start kindergarten at a younger age than kids in almost any other state, often without the maturity and the social, early literacy, and pre-math skills they need to meet the challenges of kindergarten. At the same time, California has some of the highest standards for what we expect our children to learn in kindergarten.
Transitional Kindergarten is a two year kindergarten program that builds a bridge between the preschool years and kindergarten.
With the increasingly academic demands of Kindergarten, some parents wonder if their children are ready for the traditional Kindergarten program. Please click here to see if your child qualifies for (based on their date of birth) Transitional Kindergarten or Kindergarten.
This program will provide children with the gift of time to build necessary social, developmental, and academic skills for success throughout their school careers. The program is based on California's Kindergarten Standards with focused instruction in literacy and numeracy along with strong emphasis on self regulation and social engagement.
