Nestled in an area rich in the history of California including the Pony Express and the onset of the Gold Rush, Rescue Elementary School is a quiet oasis in an area of rapidly expanding foothill neighborhoods. School buses pass along a road next to which cows are grazing with deer and wild turkeys appearing from time to time. Approaching our school from the west you will see the Sierra Nevada mountains in the background, covered with snow for much of the year. Our enrollment of Transitional Kindergarten through 5th grade hovers at about 480 enthusiastic students. The Parent Teacher Council at Rescue is a generous group of dedicated parents who passionately support our school community with their efforts. Our teachers are a highly qualified collection of nurturing and devoted professionals with consistently high standards for themselves and their students.
