From the Press Democrat. There is nothing terribly unique here. Azur Ingrassia, now a senior at El Molino High School in Forestville, grew up playing football. He knows push-ups, he knows laps on the track, he knows group workouts. But this isn’t football. The football team is one field over. These days, Ingrassia works out with the Lions’ cheerleading squad. Click the title above for more info.

WSCUHSD Charter Middle School

The WSCUHSD board finalized the process of establishing the district’s new charter school at its June 15 meeting. West County Charter Middle School will serve as WSCUHSD’s first middle school, serving 7th and 8th grade students beginning in the fall of 2017. West County Charter Middle School students will benefit from the Design Thinking process, promoted by Stanford University. Design Thinking is a hands-on inquiry-based learning model that promotes a solution-based approach to problem solving directly linked to the community. The school will be located in Forestville, in beautiful West Sonoma County, which will offer its students the opportunity to connect with the rich ecosystem of the Russian River and the nearby majestic Redwood forests of the region.

About West Sonoma County Union High School District

The West Sonoma County Union High School District is located in Western Sonoma County stretching from the rural orchards and dairies north of Petaluma on up the coast to the historic reaches of Fort Ross. The largest residential area in the District is the city of Sebastopol, located fifty miles north of San Francisco and 10 miles west of Santa Rosa.

The District lies within the world famous wine, grape, and apple producing region of Sonoma County. North of Sebastopol the communities of Forestville, Cazadero, Graton, Guerneville, Occidental and Monte Rio offer a slower paced life style for middle-income families who work in the area. A growing trend sees more families moving north from the congestion and pace of the larger urban areas of the San Francisco Bay.
