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.
