Vision and Mission



Every PUSD student will receive an excellent education so that each may reach his or her full potential and become a joyful and fully engaged member of our democratic society.


Our Mission is to support, enhance and supplement the programs, initiatives and priorities of the PUSD.


Among the many highlights of the past few years:

•   We sponsored Muir Ranch, a thriving working garden at John Muir High School, where students learn engineering, math, business, horticulture and more.

•   In collaboration with PUSD and Pasadena High School, we launched the App Academy, a four-year high school program focused on computer science.

•   We expanded My Masterpieces: Discovering Art in My Community, our award- winning arts program, to every elementary school in the district, this year involving over 400 teachers and 9,000 students.

•   Our Summer Enrichment program now provides outstanding hands-on classes to over 1,500 K-12 students. 

PEF is supported by funds from the community.
