    Secondary Education in PUSD consists of grades 6-12.  A secondary education helps students realize their human potential and take their place in society as productive, responsible and democratic citizens.

    MIDDLE SCHOOL:  We know how vitally important the middle grades are in a young person’s educational and social development, and it is our steadfast goal to provide your child with the most enriching and empowering education possible.  When our middle school students reach their highest academic, social, and leadership potential, we will know we have met our goals and these students can successfully transition to high school.   

    HIGH SCHOOL:  High School education in PUSD has expanded to prepare our graduates for an ever-changing world and a global economy. We are providing students more of the advanced skills they need to be successful, productive citizens who are future-ready.  We are committed to providing every student with a foundation of knowledge and character necessary to excel in higher education, work, and life.
