Alpine County is a combined Office of Education and Unified School District. We currently have three schools allowing specialized programming for students. We encourage family and community involvement in our schools and are proud of many collaborative and outreach projects.Our largest school, Diamond Valley Elementary School, has received recognition as a California Distinguished School three times in a row.

Our Secondary Community Day School and Opportunity School offer educational options for
students needing more individualized support. Our Bear Valley Elementary School is opening for the 2018-2019 school year!

Alpine County is a wonderful place to live, learn, and play. Contact any of us for more information on our educational programs.
