About Us

Esparto High School remains the single comprehensive high school in the Esparto Unified School District.  In addition to EHS, the district maintains an elementary school, a middle school and continuation high school.  Esparto Unified School District still stands out as a small, rural, agricultural district in Yolo County.  

The campus of Esparto High School is the central point of many community and school activities.  With the restoration of the auditorium, made possible through funding from the local Tribal Mitigation funds and District general funds,  community involvement as well as school assemblies and productions have increased.  The Capay Almond Festival continues to be a major community event.

Esparto High School provides students with a structured and supportive testing environment, thus EHS students will perform very well. Staff at EHS is focusing upon teaching to the California Common Core State Standards via a rich and varied curricular program. EHS continues to offer a rigorous academic program consisting of college prep classes, AP offerings, Ag science, world languages, and a diverse selection of CTE classes.

Like the curricular program, EHS remains a highly diverse school. The ethnic make-up of EHS is 56.61 percent Hispanic, 36.27  percent White,  2  percent Asian, and 2 percent Two or More races.  Among the significant sub-groups at EHS, there are currently 58.6 % socioeconomically disadvantaged, 21.4 % English Learners, and 8.1 % student with disabilities.
Recognizing student success has become an important aspect of EHS this school year.

Inviting parents and the community to take part in EHS is strongly encouraged. Additionally, a monthly news article is submitted and published in the local newspaper, The Valley Voice. Parents and community are encouraged to participate at EHS school activities and sports. Parents can volunteer their time in the classroom, with tutoring, supporting athletic events, belonging to  Ag boosters, or Athletic boosters. Parents are also needed to participate in the School Site Council, on the English Learner Advisory Council, and on the Ag Advisory Committee. Parents are welcome to attend Academic Awards assemblies; FFA awards assemblies, Athletic awards assemblies, and the National Honor Society induction ceremony. All of these are held throughout the school year. Parents are also welcome to make an appointment to visit the school and the classrooms of their students.

The Esparto High School shared vision of education: consistent rigor, extraordinary results, and inspired relationships.
