EXCELSIOR SCHOOL API SCORE INCREASES BY 9 POINTS!
Excelsior School is proud of the continuous academic growth demonstrated by our students. Our school API score increased by 9 points to a score of 898 for the 2011-2012 school year. This growth is the result of a school-wide focus on the state standards, and strong relationships among students, families, and school staff. The EUSD vision can be seen in action each day at Excelsior. Not only do our students exceed traditional standards, they are also provided with a dynamic education that focuses on important
21st century skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, and character development. As part of our district’s Challenge 21 initiative, the Excelsior staff has focused on providing students with meaningful, authentic opportunities to apply these important skills.
Once again, the Eureka Union School District ranks first when compared to districts thoroughout the region with an impressive district-wide API of 918!
