Janesville School is contained in a one-school district. The school serves approximately 350 students in kindergarten through the eighth grade. Janesville School is known as a “union school district” because several smaller school districts, including Janesville, Lake, Missouri Bend and Milford that formerly existed in the Honey Lake Valley joined into one single, geographically large school district.
Janesville School is located on Main Street in the community of Janesville. The school includes a beautifully maintained campus nestled in the tree line of the Southern Cascades.
Janesville School was located in the same location as today. Janesville was one of the early settlements in Lassen County and was one of the possible locations for the government seat in 1864.
