The Nevada Joint Union High School District is located in northern California about sixty (60) miles northeast of Sacramento. The district is ideally located in Grass Valley, in the Sierra Nevada foothills, a small community with a rich history of the Gold Rush. To the north is Lake Tahoe (a two-hour drive) and to the south is Sacramento (a one-hour drive) and San Francisco (a three-hour drive) providing a wide variety of winter and summer sports, recreational and cultural activities.
Nevada County has eight elementary/middle school districts feeding into the high schools, which provide secondary education to 3,000 students with a variety of schools and programs. We are proud of our exemplary schools, which have received state and national recognition.
