Nicasio Schools

Surrounded by oaks and fields, Nicasio is a quiet little town that gives the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. It is, however, only 30 miles north of San Francisco and a few miles west of Novato. If the idea of an idyllic, small town atmosphere close to the conveniences of civilization attracts you, Nicasio might be the place for you. If you have children, you will also need to evaluate the local schools and decide whether they will meet the needs of your children and your family.
