Academics
The arts distinguish education at Nevada City School of the Arts. Our program is interdisciplinary at its core, exploring the ground where science, history, literature, and art meet. NCSA provides a rigorous academic curriculum in which students have the opportunity to create art, understand its cultural and historical context, and respond to, and make critical judgments about, art. In this setting two tenets are important: art is a lens through which we see the world, and the production of art has inherent value. The School of the Arts is not an "art school" in the sense that it does not solely produce or attract "artists." There are many students here who do not identify themselves as "artists" or even as "artistic," but who are nonetheless expressing themselves through the arts, and comprehend their academic studies through artistic expression, be it story, dance, painting, fiber arts, martial arts or musical composition.

  • 10085 Adam Avenue
    Grass Valley, Nevada

Yuba River Charter School was the first public charter school in the United States to be guided by the principles of public Waldorf education (Rudolf Steiner’s developmental model of the child). Our vision for a charter school using Waldorf-trained teachers began years ago, due to the active interest of many local parents and teachers.
 
In July 2007 Yuba River Charter School joined with five other charter schools in Nevada County to form a county-wide benefit charter authorized by the Nevada County Office of Education and Nevada County Superintendent of Schools. This collaboration has allowed the schools to purchase business services together and form a JPA for special education purposes. It also allowed YRCS to become a non-profit public benefit corporation which entitles the school to apply for many grants and funding opportunities that benefit only non-profit organizations.
