A Place to Learn and Grow Together

Leggett Valley Unified School District is the Northern most district in Mendocino County.  It is a unique district with two distinct sites 90 minutes apart.

Leggett Valley School is located at the junction of Highway 1 and Highway 101.  It is walking distance from the world-famous Drive Thru Tree.  Student population is small, which assures that our children get the attention and help they need to be successful as adults in this 21st Century world.

Leggett is the “Gateway to the Redwoods” and is surrounded by State Recreation areas and State Reserves. Medical services and shopping are located to the north and south within one-half hour’s drive.

Whale Gulch School is one of the most unique schools in California.  Started out of a yurt by parents that were concerned with long travel time for their students, Whale Gulch has grown into a beautiful campus that houses K-12 students.A majority of our students at Whale Gulch come from Shelter Cove.  Shelter Cove is the entrance to the Lost Coast wilderness.  One of the most beautiful places in Northern California.
