The Corvallis School District is well-known across the state of Oregon for the breadth and excellence of educational experiences it provides students at every grade level. From kindergarten through grade 12, students are challenged to discover their personal strengths and abilities while exploring the world around them, and they are encouraged to prepare themselves to make a difference in that world once they graduate.
Located in Corvallis, Oregon, the school district consists of seven K-5 elementary schools, one K-5 charter school, one K-8 school, two middle schools, two high schools and one alternative high school. The district’s central office is located at 1555 S.W. 35th St., just south of the Oregon State University campus.
