Welcome to Southern Humboldt Unified School District!

The Southern Humboldt Unified School District is a geographically mountainous area about half the size of Rhode Island. It covers approximately 773 square miles of steep terrain, deep river valleys, large Redwood State Parks, coastal mountain ranges and a small ocean fishing community. Employment in the southern part of Humboldt County is supplied mostly by timber, commercial fishing, tourism, the school district and state agencies.

The Southern Humboldt Unified School District consists of what was formerly nineteen separate school districts. These original nineteen independent districts were combined into one unified district in 1948.

The district is currently comprised of five elementary schools, one high school and Osprey Learning Center, which is an umbrella for alternative programs including Independent Study and Continuation classes. Our current enrollment is 780 students.

THROWBACK THURSDAY!!! The Wood Family has been a HUGE influence on the Southern Humboldt Unified School District dating all the way back to the late 1800's when Charles Wood helped establish a school house in the area. His Daughter, Leona not only taught at the one room school house, but she along with her brother Ernest started a long family tradition of serving on the School Board. The Wood Family has South Fork Alumni dating back to the 1930's! Members of this family have given back to the schools in many capacities from serving on the Board, Coaching, and running the Booster Club. Combined this family has raised millions of dollars for the students of Southern Humboldt. We think they are one in a MILLION and that is why the lobby of the newly renovated Hartley Gym at South Fork High School will be Dedicated as the Wood Family Lobby tomorrow at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Come help us celebrate this family's commendable DEVOTION and LOYALTY dating back over 100 years!

We are going Wayback Wednesday today to talk about one of South Fork High School's most beloved Teachers and Coach CLINT BAINBRIDGE! Clint worked at SFHS for 32 years. He had many Championship Basketball Trophies won during his time as Coach but more important to him than winning was a good attitude from his Cubs. If they gave it their all and were GOOD SPORTS, that was what mattered most. His dedication to the students of Southern Humboldt and his sterling example of INTEGRITY and MENTORSHIP will be celebrated at the Grand Opening of Hartley Gym on Friday at 1 pm at SFHS as we dedicate the court to this amazing man!. Clint and his wife, Jan will be there. Join us!!!

Did you know that the original gym at South Fork High School was completed in 1957 and was dedicated to David R. Hartley, a beloved Custodian? He was honored for his “LOYALTY and UNSELFISH DEVOTION TO COMMUNITY, accompanied by the sterling traits of FRIENDLINESS, CO-OPERATION, HONESTY, and HUMBLENESS”. His son, James Hartley, who graduated from SFHS in 1940, sent the original Dedication which can be seen framed in the new Trophy Case of the Hartley Gym. James describes his father in a letter written to Principal Quast in 1991 as “An ordinary man, with extraordinary virtues, a man with complete integrity” and asked the question “Isn’t refreshing to know that a person can be honored for what they are rather than who they are?” We think so! Come help us celebrate a long history of awesomeness this Friday, November 17th at 1 pm at the Grand Re-Opening of Hartley Gym!!!
