Welcome to the Escondido Union High School District! While the 2018-2019 school year has begun, we continue to invite you and your student to enroll at an EUHSD campus to prepare for college, career and a bright future. You will be joining over 7400 inquisitive students actively engaged in learning who are supported by a dedicated and diverse staff.
For over 120 years, the Escondido Union High School District (EUHSD) has inspired, guided and at times gently nudged students to establish and reach their personal goals. Whether in the classroom, library, Learning Center or on the playing field every student deserves the chance to develop the knowledge and skills necessary for success.
The CHOICE is YOURS! On every campus, including Escondido, Orange Glen, San Pasqual, Valley or Del Lago Academy, you will find a unique learning environment in which students can truly thrive. With nationally recognized Advanced Placement courses, College & Career Technical Education, Independent Study, after school enrichment, career exploration, STEM and more, opportunities are abundant.
The District embraces the responsibility of public education for every child and we want to assist you in selecting the campus that best fits your needs. Many support services such as special education, nutrition and tutoring programs are available throughout the district, with some variances between sites. An on-site school social worker, in conjunction with the counseling staff, provides academic, social and emotional resources for students and families. Each EUHSD campus is committed to building critical thinking and problem solving skills so that when students graduate, they are ready for college, ready for work – ready for life.
School Safety remains one of our highest priorities. We have been working closely with the Escondido Police Department reviewing our campuses and safety procedures to maximize the safety of students and staff. We have added a new sign in system when you visit one of our campuses call Raptor to provide a greater level of security. If you or your child have a concern about a school threat please call the Escondido Police (call 911) to report the threat. School administrators are also available for lower level concerns. If you SEE SOMETHING SAY SOMETHING to the police or school administration. Anonymous tips may also be made to “We Tip” at 1-800-78-CRIME or at www.wetip.com.
An integral part of the district, Escondido Adult School has served the community for more than 40 years. They are leaders in helping students complete a high school diploma/GED, learn a new skill or trade, as well as develop hidden talents and passions. Each year, over 6500 students participate in a wide array of academic, vocational and enrichment opportunities to strengthen their role as members of the local and global community.
We look forward to working together to ensure the very best educational experience for all students in the Escondido Union High School District.
