North Clackamas County – Clackamas, Milwaukie

North Clackamas County is located south east of metro Portland and include the communities of Clackamas, Milwaukie and Happy Valley.
Helping students to succeed “Toward a New Excellence” is the motto, reflecting the challenges presented to many, by the rapidly growing communities. Once considered more rural, now new construction of larger family homes has drawn in families seeking affordable newer neighborhoods. The motto honors the past in a community that has taken great pride in its schools and for a district that had already experienced success and recognition for its efforts. It challenges our present practices and whether they are working for the benefit of students and the community.  And it holds a vision for the future helping us strive for quality, consistency and equity, the three strongest themes we heard from our community.
