The EUSD vision and our Excelsior Core Beliefs can be seen in action each day at Excelsior, where we strive to provide all of our students 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 provides students with meaningful, authentic opportunities to apply these important skills across content areas each day. Excelsior School is very proud to have been honored as a California Gold Ribbon School for our outstanding Challenge 21 program!


The high degree of success demonstrated by our students is the result of a collaborative focus on rigorous standards, and strong relationships among students, families, and school staff. We continue to welcome many new families to our school and our students enjoy the benefits of a tremendously supportive school community.  As you know, there are multiple opportunities for families to be involved in the educational process. Your support is critical to the success of our learners, and we continue to welcome your active participation.  Please look for information about our Parent Teacher Club, School Site Council, the Eureka Schools Foundation, and other ways of supporting your students and our school during the upcoming year.

We encourage you to visit and like our Excelsior School Facebook page for more information about the engaging and exciting activities taking place at Excelsior and within our school community. We look forward to another exceptional year at Excelsior!
