Executive Director's Message

As we enter our 20th year serving students in Plumas County, I am thrilled to share progress on our new facility. I am so proud of our teachers and staff for their responsiveness during this time of transition—during which our enrollment has increased—and the way they continue to embrace the core values of our school. Thank you to our families and communities for your support!
