We are excited that you are considering a move to
Douglas County, Nevada!
Douglas County School District is a public education system nestled among 751 beautiful square miles of western Nevada. Our county includes both the Carson Valley and portions of Lake Tahoe. The Valley is bordered on the west, by the Carson Range of the Sierra Nevada with peaks reaching 11,000 feet above sea level and by the Pinenut Mountains on the east, rising to 9,400 feet. Our district serves the communities of Gardnerville, Minden, Genoa and parts of Lake Tahoe (from Glenbrook to Stateline.)
Our schools provide over 6,000 students with a nurturing and rigorous learning environment.
Douglas County students are successful because our employees, parents, and community work together to provide a quality education. Our mission is to ensure that all students achieve excellence in education, character and citizenship, in partnership with parents and community. The six goals that guide our efforts include:
