The Humboldt County School District is a progressive public school system located in rural north-central Nevada, in the heart of the world’s third largest gold-producing area. The district serves approximately 3,500 students in 11 schools—three K-4 schools, a 5-6 middle school, a 7-8 junior high, and a 9-12 high school located in the community of Winnemucca, as well as four K-8 schools and one K-12 school in remote rural areas throughout Humboldt County.
Humboldt County schools are routinely honored for their academic accomplishments, success that administrators attribute to strong leadership within the schools themselves, a core of talented and dedicated teachers, and strong parental and community support.
Over the course of the past several years, Humboldt County School District schools have been recognized as Distinguished Title I schools at the state and national level, and several sites have been recognized as high achieving and exemplary schools. Winnemucca Grammar School, our oldest elementary school, was also named a Blue Ribbon School.
The Humboldt County School District focuses on the individual learner, with the goal of helping each student achieve his or her maximum success. Truly, we understand that today’s students will be tomorrow’s leaders.
