Message from the Superintendent

Welcome to the Paradise Unified School District website. PUSD proudly serves the Towns of Paradise, Magalia, and Stirling City. We are located in the most beautiful area in California and offer a wide range of educational opportunities for students. PUSD supports preschool through adult education programs and twelve schools including traditional campuses, charter schools, and home study opportunities. Our programs include Advanced Placement classes, career path programs, academic support, smaller learning communities, and child centered classrooms.
From energetic teachers just beginning their careers in this sought-after district, to award winning veterans of the classroom, our schools are all staffed with highly qualified, dedicated, and caring teachers who work together to create the best possible learning environment for your child. Using California's rigorous curriculum content standards and data-based research as their guide, our outstanding teachers are committed to making sure that every child confidently masters California's clearly defined and challenging standards in math, science, and the language arts.

Paradise Unified is proud of our reputation for warm and friendly schools where teachers are really able to get to know each student personally. In addition, our schools are also well equipped with a wide array of resources to ensure that every child can succeed to his or her fullest potential, including early intervention programs; academic, social and emotional counseling; and curriculum in music, art, physical fitness, and nutrition. Included throughout our rich curriculum is a foundation of character education. And it shows! Paradise schools have received both California Distinguished School and Title I Academic Achievement recognition in recent years.

It's not only our teachers and administrators who care. In our close-knit educational family, hundreds of involved parents partner directly with our district professionals during the school year. By volunteering in the classroom or becoming part of an active network of official parent/faculty associations that enhance the curriculum and sponsor other school activities, these parents represent our community's deep commitment to making our schools as safe, productive, happy, and healthy as possible.

Trust your family to our family and become a part of our educational community of excellence. At Paradise Unified, we believe that a public school education is not simply your basic right. It's the right choice for your child.
