The Yuba River Charter School is nonsectarian in its programs, admissions policies, employment practices, and all other operations. YRCS is a public school and will not charge tuition and will not discriminate against any pupil on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, or any other basis protected by law.
All parents and/or guardians interested in enrolling a child into Yuba River Charter School are invited to attend one of our monthly Parent Information Meetings (PIMs). These meetings are not for enrolling a child into the Little Creek Nursery Program (see Nursery/Preschool Enrollment page). Attending a PIM is required before receiving an Application for Enrollment into our K-8 and Home Study programs. During this meeting you will learn about the history of Yuba River Charter School, the philosophy and educational approach of a public Waldorf curriculum, the operational structure of YRCS, as well as enjoy a guided tour of our classrooms as you see the teachers and students engaged in daily activities.
Up Coming Parent Information Meetings – Meetings are from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. (unless otherwise noted) and evenings meetings take place from 5:00-6:30 p.m.
For the 2016-17 school year
Parent Information Meetings are held in the YRCS school auditorium at 505 Main Street, Nevada City, CA.
We ask that you reserve a space to attend a PIM. These meetings are for parents only. We ask that children stay home or with a caregiver, so that adults can fully participate in the meeting and presentation. To register please call 530-265-6060 ext. 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
