Principal's Message

 Exeter Union High School Principal Robert Mayo

Dear Parents and Students:

WE ARE BACK!!! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year.   Exeter Union High School staff, students, and parents will continue to work together to support the goal of our mission statement: We exist to empower lives through Learning.  When we speak of learning, we speak beyond just knowledge.  We want to empower our students to also learn the skills and dispositions needed for life beyond high school.

As we begin this school year I am confident that our students will continue to demonstrate Monarch PRIDE.  PRIDE being the acronym which stands for Purpose, Responsibility, Integrity, Duty, and Excellence. We continue to have students exemplify PRIDE in the classroom, in the arenas of competition, and within our community. 

Our teachers and School Board, in an effort to provide greater time for teachers to develop best instructional practices, have again approved an Early Release to be included within our weekly bell schedules.  We have adjusted our bell schedule so that the school day concludes at 1:00 pm on Wednesdays.  

A culture of academia is driving enhanced student counseling services, new college/career preparatory classes, college aligned courses and Dual Enrollment opportunities for students.   In addition, we have added a half time Assistant Principal to oversee remediation and enrichment opportunities for student learning. To complement the academic focus, there is a need to support the social and emotional needs of our students.  EUHS has added a full-time School Psychologist and a full-time Licensed Marriage Family Therapist (LMFT) to support the wellbeing of our students.    

We will continue to use our school website as a great resource for information and celebrations.  Our Website and Social Media platforms are designed to increase student learning and continue to enhance communication.  We have a determination to pursue success, and continue to honor the rites, rituals and traditions that allow everyone associated with EXETER more reasons to proudly state, “I am a MONARCH”.  I invite you to join us as we work to ensure that EXETER is truly an exceptional school. GO MONARCHS!
