Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! Mammoth Unified School District is proud to provide many varied programs to meet the diverse needs of our students. We are a small school district of approximately 1200 students. Because we are small, yet a public school district, we are able to offer a personalized education program for every student – a private school education within the public school setting of the beautiful Eastern Sierra .
From the time our students enter kindergarten, they are provided a rich educational experience. Parents can select from a traditional English only program or a Dual Immersion Spanish/English program. MUSD offers foreign language from kindergarten through grade 12 and produces many students who earn a California Biliteracy Seal on their high school diploma.
Throughout elementary and middle school, students participate in exciting hands-on learning opportunities inside and outside of school such as science trips to the Valentine Reserve and Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Labs (SNARL), ski PE, participation in research on our local streams and wildlife, computer programing, school and community music programs, and community service with many local agencies. These are only a few of the many opportunities our students have.
Both students and teachers use technology as a tool for learning. During the 2014-2015 school year, all students will have either their own assigned device or one to use in every classroom. Technology is an important tool in our educational program.
As students move into high school, the options increase. Many Mammoth students develop strong interests in areas such as sports, art, or music. The ability to personalize a flexible learning program allows a student to pursue those interests while still being able to participate in the comprehensive high school experience. Students can take classes in-seat, on-line, or across the street at Cerro Coso Community College where students can earn high school and college credit concurrently. The Independent Learning Center provides a supportive setting for students to learn on-line with the guidance of fully credentialed teachers. Our continuation program, Sierra High School, offers a small personalized setting for students who want an alternative pathway. Many of these students choose to work while attending high school.
Our graduates are accepted into the full range of colleges, universities and technical schools across the United States and internationally. Last year’s graduates were accepted to schools such as Yale, Berkley, California Institute for the Arts, Colorado School of Mines, Wyoming Technical Institute, and University of Mexico.
Mammoth Unified School District is located in an exceptional area, is supported by an exceptional community, and provides an exceptional education for the students we serve.
