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

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.
