How We Support Our Schools

The Nevada City Schools Foundation supports both Deer Creek and Seven Hills Middle School to enhance student learning. Extra-curricular programs and current technologies in classrooms help students learn through visual, auditory, kinesthetics, as well as in their reading and writing .
