    District Overview

    Gravenstein Union School District is a Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade school district with an enrollment of approximately 750 students. The district is located in the southeast rural section of Sebastopol in West Sonoma County.  Approximately 65% of the students attending our schools live outside of the original district boundaries. There are four schools in the district. Gravenstein School is a K-5 charter school with the exception of some first grade classes (called Gravenstein First School). Hillcrest Middle School is a 6th - 8th grade middle school which is a charter school, and the district also has a Community Day School. The district has a K-8 Magnet/GATE Program at both campuses (ENRICH!). The sites reflect the rural nature of the community. The relatively small enrollment at each site, excellent staff and very involved parents have worked together to establish a student body that has achieved some of the highest California state test scores in Sonoma County for the last 15 years.
