Welcome to the Susanville School District website. The Susanville School District endeavors to educate all students to their fullest potential, and to promote responsible, self-reliant, independent, caring students who have the skills and attitudes necessary to become successful and productive citizens within a safe, supportive environment.
The Susanville School District is the largest K-8 school district in Lassen County and consists of three schools within the greater City of Susanville area. The District currently encompasses the City of Susanville and stretches north to the shores of beautiful Eagle Lake. With a student population of just over 1100 elementary students in 2016, the Susanville School District serves as a leader in the county's educational community.
School houses were originally established in the Susanville area as early as 1863; where a one-story school was built on the southwest side of Cottage and Weatherlow Streets. In 1864, the county mapped the boundaries for the school districts in the area. In 1900, a two-story brick schoolhouse was built; the Susanville Grammar School had ten classrooms for its students. Established in 1925, the Susanville School District has played an integral role in the history of the City of Susanville and Lassen County. Washington School was the original grammar school in Susanville and was later joined by Lincoln, Roosevelt and McKinley Schools. In 1938, Roosevelt Pool was opened behind the Roosevelt School on Richmond Road. Today, the three schools servicing the students of the Susanville School District are: McKinley School (K-2), Meadow View School (3-5) and Diamond View School (6-8). With a wide range of programs and fantastic teaching staff, the students of the Susanville School District are well served in their educational needs.
