Welcome to the Pendleton School District

Welcome to the Pendleton School District.  We are located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Northeastern Oregon.  Pendleton is known worldwide for the Pendleton Round-Up, which takes place the second week of September for more than 110 years.  We are equally proud of our school district that provides diverse opportunities for students in preparation for their lives after high school.

We are home to 2909 students, 167 licensed staff and 69 support staff.  We operate four elementary schools, one middle school, one comprehensive high school and one alternative high school.  In addition, we are the host to Nixya’awii Charter School that serves students on the Confederate Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

Our work is driven by four main goals that are the focus of our efforts and they include:

  • Instructional Excellence, which involves seeking out the very best people to work with our students. Then providing our staff with professional growth opportunities throughout their careers.   Our people make the difference.

  • Being Responsive to the needs of all students is reflected in our motto, “Every student, every day”.

  • Innovative and emerging trends and practices is a trademark for our district. We are proud of such innovations as the Pendleton Early Learning Center to our Agricultural Sciences program.

  • Living the Brand speaks to the value we place on what we do every day and the impact that we have on our students.
