Healdsburg Unified School District
Healdsburg’s schools are alive with excitement. With enthusiastic teachers, innovative administrators and a community that provides outstanding support, Healdsburg Unified School District is uniquely situated to provide an excellent educational experience to the children of the community.

Spanning kindergarten through high school, Healdsburg schools offer a sense of community that is rare in today’s society. Children enter the schools together in kindergarten and, 13 years later, graduate side-by-side from Healdsburg High School. The community supports the students every step of the way. Parents, grandparents, friends and community leaders gather to watch football and baseball games, judge the HFFCF animal competition and provide record levels of scholarship funds to graduating seniors. With this tremendous level of support, our students are free to explore, learn and grow in a safe and nurturing environment.
