Pleasanton... A Destination District!
The Pleasanton Unified School District (PUSD) has an established history as a destination district for families and educators. Consistently ranked as a top school district in the State and the Bay Area, along with nationally ranked schools and programs, PUSD is also ranked #1 in Alameda County among the best places to teach (according to Niche.com).
PUSD is dedicated to developing adult leaders and learners. PUSD is home to the Pleasanton New Teacher Project (PNTP). Accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing, PNTP provides new teachers a two-year comprehensive professional growth and development pathway leading to a clear teaching credential in general or special education. Thanks in large part to the PNTP, over 90% of teachers who begin teaching in Pleasanton, stay in Pleasanton.

The Impact of Parcel Taxes
PUSD is a top-performing district in Alameda County, consistently ranking highly in terms of academic achievement and student outcomes. PUSD is the only district among Berkeley, Dublin, San Lorenzo, San Ramon, and Livermore that does not have a parcel tax to support its schools, and yet has managed to maintain its position as a high-performing district with dedicated and highly qualified educators, robust academic programs, and extracurricular activities that cater to diverse student interests. This is a testament to PUSD staff and community commitment to providing a high-quality education for all students and the ability to leverage district resources effectively to benefit students and staff.
