Welcome to the Mount Shasta and Weed Elementary School Districts
I am privileged to serve as superintendent to two districts that have formed a partnership to share administrative services. Mount Shasta Union School District and Weed Union Elementary School District are neighboring districts that share a beautiful mountain environment, a strong commitment to student achievement, and the support of communities who care about their children.
MSUSD and WUESD are comprised of three schools:
Mount Shasta Elementary School is a kindergarten through third grade school with approximately 220 students. Designated a California Distinguished School in 2008, this elementary school is known for strong parent and community support, high levels of academic achievement, and a strong music program.
Sisson School is a fourth through eighth grade school with approximately 300 students. Designated a California Distinguished School in 2009, Sisson provides an exemplary music program, a competitive athletic program, and high levels of academic achievement.
The Sisson School campus also includes a 3rd through 6th grade program called Strawberry Valley. This program includes two multi-age self-contained classes that are taught with an emphasis on arts and natural science. The 2015-2016 school year marks Strawberry Valley’s 3rd year.
Weed Elementary School is a kindergarten through eighth grade school with approximately 250 students. WES provides a rigorous academic program, a free after school program every school day until 6:00 for all students, a competitive athletic program, and a pride-filled community of parents and staff who welcome and support students daily. Weed Elementary School’s programs include instrumental and/or vocal music offered to all students.
MSUSD and WUESD are committed to improving student achievement, providing schools that are safe and well maintained, and operating with increasing efficiency and effectiveness. We achieve these aims through collaboration and communication among and between all stakeholder groups in the education communities in both districts.
Set in dynamic communities and with inviting and well maintained campuses, Mount Shasta Elementary School, Sisson School and Weed Elementary School are great places to attend school. We welcome your interest in our fine districts.
