Kings Canyon Unified School District comprises mainly Reedley, California area schools, but also those for the town of Orange Cove and the mountain areas (Dunlap, Miramonte, Squaw Valley, Wonder Valley). All of these schools boast excellence and school pride (but without offering any evidence for this). Most of them claim to have above excellent state scores and have allegedly been awarded many awards such as being the first middle school in California to be awarded Renaissance Model School. The athletics are mainly for fun until they reach high school where most sports are highly competitive. The KCUSD headquarters is located near Reedley High School.
