Academic Achievement Top of Page

The Eureka schools have long been a statewide leader in student performance. With the new CAASPP (California Assessments of Student Performance and Progress) tests, EUSD students continue to perform at higher proficiency rates compared to regional and statewide averages. 

The graph above shows our 2016 CAASPP results compared to the Placer Region and California State. NOTE: There are several districts in Placer County and California that include 11th graders.
EUSD student performance continues to exhibit growth across all grade levels for both ELA (English Language Arts) and Math. One of the reasons for the continuing excellent performance in statewide tests is due to our unique Challenge 21 program.  Our Challenge 21 program components of critical thinking, life and character skills, information, media and technology skills, creativity and innovation are infused into the daily curriculum as well as the culture of each school.

Additionally our College and Career Readiness curriculum combines with Challenge 21 to create ready and inspired global citizens prepared for college, the workforce and beyond.
