Our Community

When children enroll at Neskowin Valley School, their families become part of a vital and caring community; an interaction of all ages. Children have a younger or older student who becomes their special “buddy.” A strong bond of friendship develops as they exchange notes and artwork, read with one another, and work together on projects.


Neskowin Valley School is enriched by the daily presence of parents and grandparents who volunteer in the office, classroom and library. Parents and other volunteers read with children, share their skills, organize field trips, help with drama productions, and work on board committees.

Active participation of parents or guardians in their child’s education assures a more successful experience and is essential to the character of the school. All parents are members of the Parent Association. This group supports special projects and raises a portion of the operating budget through a variety of fundraising events.
