Middle School


Welcome to the 2016-17 school year.

On behalf of the students and staff welcome to the Neah-Kah-Nie School District and Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School. I am proud to be the principal of the middle school and more proud of its achievements and successes. We have been identified by the Oregon Department of Education as a Level Five school the past four school years. We have earned this recognition through strong attendance, comprehensive programs for students, and stellar results on benchmark tests.  We strive to meet every student’s needs through strong instruction in math, science, language arts and social studies. Additionally, we offer art, band, choir, technology, and PE among our elective classes for students to explore their creative pursuits.

We are fortunate to also offer a wide variety of sports teams after school for our students to compete in.  Football, Volleyball, Cross Country, Wrestling, Girls and Boys Basketball, and Track and Field are all offered to our 7th and 8th grade students.  6th grade students can try out for football, basketball and volleyball, and regularly compete in cross country, wrestling, and track and field.

Located on the bluff above the high school on the 101 Highway, our students are offered one of the best views of the Oregon Coast around.  This view frames the promising educational experience we strive to provide them every day. If you are out of the area and are considering our school district please come by for a visit any time.  We would love to show you around and teach you and your child what it means to be a Raider!

Sincerely yours,

Leo Lawyer
