About Us

Pleasant Grove High School
Pleasant Grove High School is the eighth of nine comprehensive high schools in the Elk Grove Unified School District. The District also includes four alternative high schools, nine middle schools, forty elementary schools, and an adult education program.  In addition, a virtual academy for online learning commenced in the fall of 2010. Pleasant Grove High School (PGHS) opened its doors on August 29, 2005 to 1,053 ninth and tenth-grade students.  The school is located on Bond Road and serves the Rancho Murieta and Wilton areas to the east, the Rancho Cordova neighborhood of Anatolia to the northeast in addition to sections of Sacramento and Elk Grove to the south and west. Because Pleasant Grove serves such a vast attendance area, over 20 buses transport students to school. Residents of the PGHS region value education and take an active role in their children’s education.  Parents provide active support for our educational programs as members of School Site Council, and Parent Teacher Student Organization (PTSO), the group which primarily organizes and oversees the Sober Grad Night, booster clubs for sports teams and activities, FFA Advisory Council, and various other school and community committees and organizations. Pleasant Grove is committed to challenging students with varied and rigorous curricula and supporting their success through a comprehensive support system.  Students develop personal goals and plans as they work with their counselors and teachers to select challenging courses that align with graduation requirements, college entrance criteria, and personal interests.
