Golden Hills School is a fully accredited, independent, non-profit school. The school is self-managed and controlled and not part of a corporate chain. We offer a complete academic programs for students in Junior-Kindergarten through Eighth grade.
Our philosophy is that the successful education of a child requires an equal partnership between students, their parents and the school. At Golden Hills School, we are committed to nurturing and developing this partnership to ensure an enriched and superior educational experience for each of our students and for our families.
Small class sizes, student character development, experienced and caring teachers and parental involvement are the foundations on which Golden Hills School was established. We believe in meeting and then challenging each student at their own ability-level, providing him or her with the opportunity to progress at his or her own pace. This personalized approach allows each student to maximize their academic, social and physical potential.
Our academic program focuses on imparting a strong academic foundation, through small group, ability-based learning with differentiated instruction. By ensuring that students acquire academic skills early in their education, they are empowered and capable of becoming partners in their own education and take on the responsibility for their own learning in an age-appropriate manner.
Character education is a critical part of who we are as a community. The character development program is guided by our Characters of Gold which are integrated into everything that is taught to the students.
In addition, Golden Hills School offers an extensive portfolio of enrichment classes enabling us to deliver “A Complete Education” at a level that is unmatched in the Sacramento area. We incorporate physical education daily at all grade levels taught by a full-time physical education instructor. Our students enjoy art, music, dance, drama, Spanish, and computer instruction.
Our athletics program is extensive and very popular. We participate in the county sports program which includes basketball, volleyball, wrestling, football and cross country. Our students have the opportunity to participate in sport clinics including golf and basketball. Extracurricular activities take place on campus in our complete gymnasium with stage for the performing arts and our athletic field.
