Carlin Combined School

Carlin Combined School, located in Carlin, Nevada, is part of the Elko County School District and home to approximately 290 K–12 students. Our roots run deep in this rural farming community, and our small size makes us family. At Carlin, we’re proud to be a STEM school, which is just one way we empower our students with the tools they need to succeed in our rapidly evolving world.

A Message from Our Principal

It’s been a strange and challenging time in education for all of us. But through it all, our dedication to Carlin Combined students has remained steadfast. We come together every school day (and virtually when we can’t) with the intent to provide a sense of safety and normality for our students and their families.

On behalf of my staff and myself, we are grateful for the support of our school community. We are grateful for the willingness of our school families to quickly adapt to changes, and we are grateful to be in this together with you. Your continued support makes all the difference!


Thomas Cunningham, Principal
