About PAUSD

The reputation of Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) as one of the top districts in the United States is by design, not by chance. In cooperation with a supportive community and dedicated parents, our teachers and staff work diligently to carry out the Board-adopted Strategic Plan and implement a road map that puts students on a direct path to academic achievement.

Mission and Vision Statements

Vision:

  • We support all PAUSD students as they prepare themselves to thrive as global citizens in a rapidly changing world.  We develop our students' knowledge, critical thinking, and problem solving skills, and nurture their curiosity, creativity, and resilience, empowering every child to reach his or her full intellectual, social, and creative potential.

 

Mission:

  • We are a public, pre-K-12 school district that unites our students, teachers, staff, and parents to deliver on our collective vision by offering a rich and challenging academic experience to all students within a supportive community, dedicated to preparing our youth for the challenges of living in a fast-changing world.

We continue to reflect our Mission and Values through our District Goals as outlined in our Strategic Plan.
