The Eureka Union School District serves students in Granite Bay and east Roseville in Placer County. The rolling foothills, views of the Sierra Mountains, access to Folsom Lake, and proximity to Sacramento all make the area a highly desirable place to live and work.
Parent and community involvement in the schools is very high with strong involvement in Parent Teacher Clubs (PTC), the Eureka Schools Foundation (ESF), School Site Councils, District Advisory Committees, and other school and community groups. Parents actively volunteer in the classroom and in school activities, including service as art or science docents, libraries, guest speakers and chaperones for field trips. The District receives less federal and state funding than other districts in California; however ESF and other groups raise over $350,000 per year for enrichment Programs. ESF is also funding a Spanish, Mandarin and French Language Program for our Elementary grades of Kindergarten through sixth grade. This is a voluntary before and/or after school program. In addition the District provides Spanish immersion during the school day for Elementary grades.
Students who reside within the boundaries of the Eureka Union School District move on to Granite Bay High School in the Roseville Joint Union High School District when they graduate from eighth grade.
Students in the Eureka Union School District (EUSD) perform very well academically, as measured by national and state tests and by success in high school and beyond. EUSD schools display some of the highest proficiency rates in English Language Arts (ELA) and Math in the South Placer region, as measured through the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. The percentage of EUSD students scoring proficient or advanced for the California Content Tests is about twice the rate for the rest of the state. EUSD students are regular winners of the County Spelling Bee and in competitions with other district programs including Destination Imagination and Nature Bowl.
