Welcome to the Exeter Unified School District –
The City of Exeter has a well-known reputation as a charming community with a quaint downtown, rich history, and murals that people travel long distances to see. Exeter is also known for being a great place to live and raise children and the school district plays a key role in maintaining that reputation.
The Exeter Unified School District is comprised of two elementary schools serving students Pre-school thru grade 5, a middle school with grades 6-8, a comprehensive high school, a continuation high school, a community day school and a variety of alternative education programs to meet student needs. We provide students with a high-quality education that is enhanced by a technology device for every student in every classroom, access to music beginning in elementary school, and a wide range of extra and co-curricular activities that leads to well-rounded graduates. Nearly all of our students pursue an education or certificate training after leaving Exeter Union High School.
Our District has three main focus areas that have between 3-5 goals each. The three areas are Safety, Academics, and Connectedness. We strive to provide the safest place possible for our students and staff. We regularly perform safety drills, routinely examine procedures and work diligently to maintain and improve all school facilities. We have rigorous academics that include Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment courses taught on our high school campus complemented by award-winning elective programs in Agriculture, Music, and Graphic Arts, Media and Entertainment (GAME). The goals in the area of Connectedness include 100% of our students participating at least one extra or co-curricular activity such as sports, music, academic competitions or active club membership. The focus area also includes parents because we value their partnership in the education process. We expect every teacher to make contact with parents on a regular basis as a way of keeping the lines of communication open and the exchange of information about students ongoing.
I am proud to serve the students, staff and Exeter community as the Superintendent of schools. Our collective efforts to have outstanding schools and a safe and vibrant community are what set us apart. I hope you take the time to further explore our website and personally visit our community.
