Each month the EUHSD Board of Education recognizes a student who has demonstrated exemplary success - whether it is modeled through their academic achievements, triumph against various challenges, or standing out for their service to the school and the community. The student, selected by the principal, is invited to attend the Board of Education monthly meeting, along with friends, family, staff and others where they will be acknowledged and receive a commemorative plaque. Congratulations to the 2014-2015 Inspirational Students of the Month.

The EUHSD Maintenance & Operations Team was busy during the summer months preparing for the return of over 7800 students to our campuses. In addition to the routine painting and repair necessary to keep each school in tip-top shape, several special projects were completed. Students will return to find new carpet and flooring in many well worn areas, additional awnings for food lines, and projectors ready for the next classroom lesson. All wood floors have been refinished, roofs were repaired and heating/cooling units were serviced. Just in time for fall sports, gym bleachers and sports fields are ready for action. Thanks to these efforts, EUHSD students and staff can continue to take pride in their outstanding facilities.
The College, Career and Technical Education programs at EUHSD continue to nurture and cultivate career minded students.

The Escondido Union High School District believes that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will benefit students throughout our community, state and nation by providing a consistently challenging, yet attainable, level of progress in each content area at each grade level. Regardless of socioeconomics, our students will learn the skills and knowledge to help them achieve in their future academic and/or career settings. The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help their students. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills young people need for success in college and careers.
