Potter Valley Jr. High is grades 7-8. It is on the same campus as the elementary and high schools, and it shares staff with the high school. The school is very small - usually around 20 students per grade - so class sizes are small and there is a lot of opportunity for individual attention. The staff is energetic and truly committed to the kids here, and afterschool help is readily available. The Jr. High has a traditional outdoor education field trip to Yosemite every other year, and there is a summer Algebra Academy after 8th grade that has field trips to visit colleges across California. Many students opt to play sports and anyone who wants to play is welcomed. There are strong programs for music and art.
