Shaffer Elementary School is a rural one-campus school district located about 17 miles east of Susanville in beautiful Lassen County, California. We are currently serving approximately 315 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. We are a community of students, teachers, parents and staff who value education and support the development of the whole child. We provide a family atmosphere where each child is honored and recognized as a valued member of the community. Along with providing a rigorous academic curriculum, students have the opportunity to participate in after school sports and clubs, designed to promote cooperation, teamwork, responsibility and respect. Our school is proud to implement the Character Counts program where students learn the value of developing strong personal ethics and character.
We believe that every child can succeed in reaching their full potential. Our goal is to help students reach their goals.
