Soulsbyville is an extraordinary place to learn and grow. It is a place of mutual respect, high academic achievement and healthy relationships. Each of us contributes to the learning environment in a consistently positive way. We care about each other, providing support and nurturing, working together to build a community of life-long learners. At Soulsbyville, “No one of us is as smart as all of us.” Go Falcons!


Soulsbyville is an exciting place! We have a very supportive community behind us. The students tend to rise to the academic rigor to which we continually push.

The entire staff works hard to establish a polite and productive climate in which learning is maximized and students feel safe. And we have a very informed and involved School Board and Superintendent. "Creating a community of life-long learners," is truly happening here at Soulsbyville as we all work together.

Soulsbyville is named after Ben Soulsby, who resided in the area during the California Gold Rush. 

Mr. Soulsby ran a lumber mill near the intersection of Community Drive and Soulsbyville Road. His contribution to society is forever embossed in the following elementary school song:

"Drop on by, we're up the hill.
We're the kids from Soulsbyville.
See the town with the old saw mill,
We're the kids from Soulsbyville.           
Living here is mighty fine,
Named for Ben Soulsby's old gold mine, Come see us, if you will.
