Wheatland Union High School District is a small, rural district that serves approximately 730 students. The Community Day School operates with a waiver for a small school and serves an average of about 10 students. The mission of the Community Day School is to:

  • Maintain a quality staff
  • Maintain a safe, positive environment
  • Help students learn to the best of their ability
  • Create a bridge between the Community Day School and the regular school by a shared commitment to students and a quality education. 
The Community Day School serves students who have been expelled from Wheatland Union High School, as well as students who could benefit from a smaller learning environment. Students enrolled in the Community Day School are taught in a smaller learning environment with a 10:1 student to faculty ratio that provides individual attention and greater supervision. This self contained learning environment serves the needs of all students in grades 7-12, including special education students. Teachers utilize several teaching modalities to accommodate a variety of student learning styles, as well as a customized Individual Learning Plan that allows students to return to their home school and meet educational requirements.
The Community Day School cultivates a positive learning environment that encourages students to develop self-confidence, a strong work ethic, and life-long learning skills, while exploring and preparing for a future career.    


Have Questions?

For Parents

When should I keep my sick student home from school?
Do not send children to school if they are sick. Any children who are determined to be sick while at school will be sent home. Keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have fever or have stopped taking medication for fever or flu symptoms.
What are the Common Core State Standards?
Since 2010, a number of states have adopted the same standards for English and math, called the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Having the same standards helps all students get a good education, even if they change schools or move to a different state. Read more at the California Department of Education website.
