Glacier was founded as a cooperative venture by parents of future students, teachers and two school administrators. Parents from Mountain Home Charter School (Mountain Home) desired to create a high school with a similar personalized learning program. Chartered through the Yosemite Unified School District, Glacier received final approval for operation from the State Board of Education in June 2002. August 19th, 2002 was the first day of student attendance with sixteen students enrolled. In 2006 we created a satellite campus in Fresno County and in the summer of 2015 we moved our campus to a new location near Fig Garden Village. Today Glacier serves over 100 students with 5 full time teachers and several part time teachers. In 2008-09 Glacier and Mountain Home School joined together to form a non-profit educational entity called Western Sierra Charter Schools. We are excited to see how our program is growing both in the mountains and in the Central Valley.
