Message from our principal:

Hello from Janesville School! Our school is a small rural school nestled up against the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We have approximately 360 students in transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade in attendance. With a faculty of eighteen teachers (including one resource teacher), our class sizes generally stay under twenty-five students. The school district itself is geographically large with coverage including the communities of Janesville and Milford along Highway 395.

The mission of the Janesville Union Elementary School District is to prepare students to be productive citizens and confident authors of their future. We will strive to achieve this by offering academically challenging curriculum, quality teaching, and modeling integrity and empathy for others.

Our students participate in a variety of enrichment, academic, and athletic activities. We have three busy afterschool clubs – gardening club in the fall and spring, band (all school year), and coding club (also all school year). Interested upper grade students may be involved in our Science Bowl team, our Geography Bowl team, Lit Jam, and a county-wide chess tournament held at our school. Kindergarten through 8th grade students are invited to join our cross country team, and 7th and 8th graders can join our flag football team in the fall. In the winter, we have 7th and 8th grade girls’ basketball teams, 7th and 8th grade boys’ basketball teams, and a very active cheerleading squad. In the spring, our 6th through 8th grade students can go out for track and field or girls’ volleyball.

Come by and visit us, and you’ll see why we love it here so much!
