Seven Hills School - A Great Place to Learn; A Great Place to Grow

Seven Hills School is a fifth through eighth grade school that serves the students in Nevada City and surrounding areas. Seven Hills School has a strong academic reputation, balanced with an exciting enrichment program that supports students' academic and personal interests. The fifth and sixth grades are self contained with students moving during the day to math and enrichment classes. In the seventh and eighth grade, students have a homeroom teacher, who serves as their first period teacher. After homeroom students move throughout the day to math, science, PE and Humanities (English/Language Arts and history). Humanities is a two period core program that focuses on English Language Arts instruction and the history being studied at that grade level. Seventh graders study the Medieval and Renaissance time periods.
