Welcome to our web page for Nehalem Elementary School (NES). We are in Nehalem just off of Highway 101. We serve about 175 students in grades Pre K-5. Our average class size is 22.
We have a Title I school-wide program, which benefits all students by providing extra support in the classroom for instruction. NES was designated a Model School for the 2014-2015 school year by the Oregon Department of Education which means we are in the top 5% of Title 1 schools.
We are fortunate to have a part-time Literacy Coach and a full time Elementary Counselor. We also have an onsite Preschool program that runs five full days per week and is free. Students and families have access to a full time Family Resource Coordinator. Students receive up to 30 min. of PE or Music daily provided by specialists. We are lucky enough to partner with the NCRD and have our students take a weekly swimming class as part of our PE program. Art is provided through the volunteer parents called the Art Moms.
We have technology rich classrooms for students in grades K-5 where each student has access to a chrome book to enhance their learning.
We are a PBIS School (Positive Behavioral Interventions Support). The three school rules are ‘BE SAFE, BE RESPECTFUL, and BE RESPONSIBLE’
The staff is committed to improving their teaching skills and methods of instruction. They are a dedicated and caring group who support each other through collaboration and planning for instruction. We have a strong focus on reading, writing, and math. We provide extra support in reading through daily reading intervention time . We have a beautiful library and computer lab.
Our school curriculum is enhanced by science field trips and special activities funded through the Mudd Nick Foundation.
The Parent Group is actively involved in school activities. We are always looking for volunteers and applications can be found in the office.
Nehalem Elementary School is a wonderful place to learn and grow. The staff and I look forward to working with you and providing a wonderful learning experience for your children.
