Summerville High School (SHS) is a comprehensive high school of 435 students. The Summerville Union High School District includes three necessary small high schools; and one 7-12 fine arts charter School. The Connections Visual and Performing Arts Academy (fine arts charter school) students, all 222 of them, attend classes with Summerville High students. This raises the number of students on campus to 657.
The 50- year old facility serves the eastern portion of Tuolumne County. Tuolumne County is rural and covers a large geographical area. Some of our students travel up to thirty miles each day to school and a large number are bussed because the campus is not within walking distance of any neighborhoods.
