The district has been developing its next 5-year Strategic Plan. The vision is "The Pendleton School District is a place where I belong, where I can succeed!" You can view the two-page summary of the plan here and the full Strategic Plan here.
The PSD has distinct advantages not always found in districts of a similar size.
- Students in Pendleton schools usually score well on state achievement tests. Traditionally, those students who plan to attend college score well above state and national scores on the SAT.
- The PSD is staffed with many dedicated long-term employees.
Outstanding Programs and Community Involvement
The Pendleton schools have an outstanding music program with instruction in band, choir and orchestra at the middle and senior high schools.
Pendleton sports programs have long-standing reputations for winning, attributed in large part to the tremendous community pride, spirit and tradition. Many sports start at the grade school level and continue through high school with a positive attitude and thus a winning program.
The district also has many school-related clubs, organizations and extracurricular activities that give students the opportunity to be involved in their schools and community. An aggressive DARE program, character education progam and gang awareness education is stressed at all levels.
