Smith River Elementary School

Smith River School is the only Preschool through 8th grade school in the Del Norte County Unified School District.  We strive to provide the best academic, social, and athletic programs in a small, family-oriented school and community.  We are the northernmost school in Del Norte County and the only Preschool through 8th grade facility with just under 250 students.    The cultural background of all students is respected, and ethnic studies are incorporated into the school curriculum and program whenever possible.  Smith River, CA, is famous for its lily bulb fields, dairy cows, and the beautiful Smith River.


Smith River School opened in 1965.
