Neskowin Valley School is an independent school registered with Oregon Department of Education. We receive accreditation through AdvancEd. The term “independent” refers to schools that are non-profit organizations governed by a board of trustees and are independent of control and funding by any government agency. As such, independent schools are free to establish their own goals and criteria as they plan curriculum and select teachers and students.
When children enroll at Neskowin Valley School, their families become part of a vital and caring community, an interaction of all ages. The 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.
