Forest Charter School offers a K-12 program for 655 students with 6 campuses spread throughout Nevada County and into Yuba and Placer counties.
“We use a variety of sites, different buildings that we lease throughout the Grass Valley/ Nevada City area. We have our high school classes at the Center for the Arts and we lease a building from St. Canace near SPD in Nevada City for the lower grades and then we have some other buildings for other co-ops that we have.”
That’s Forest Charter Director Peter Sagebiel who says they would like to consolidate some of the campuses.
“We’re interested in trying to find something that could hold the entire thing including our administrative buildings or finding two separate buildings one for our administrative services and one for our classes.”
Forest Charter does not have an athletic program but does offer athletics through courses in the community. Sagebiel says as director of Forest Charter School, He sees parents, education specialists, and students, as a dynamic and collaborative team that works together to inspire a life-long love of learning. Forest Charter schools form the Nevada County Charter Cooperative, NCCC and are sponsored by the Nevada County Superintendent of Schools.
