Reef-Sunset Unified School District currently services two communities, Avenal and Kettleman City, 17 miles apart. Within the district, there are nine schools, which include: Kettleman City Elementary (K-8), Avenal Elementary (K-5), Tamarack Elementary (k-5), Reef Sunset Middle School (6-8), Sunrise High School (9-12), Adelante High School (9-12), Secondary Community Day School (6-12), Avenal Adult School, and Avenal High School (9-12).


Avenal and Kettleman City are centrally located in the foothills of the western San Joaquin Valley. The two communities are rural farming communities with a large Hispanic population. The two towns are within two hours of driving time west to the Pacific Ocean coastline or east to the Sierra Nevada Mountains. We are also considered the halfway point between Los Angeles and San Francisco off Interstate 5.
