ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
We have students in Kindergarten through 5th grade. At every grade level, we are dedicated to providing each student with a safe and positive learning environment.
We believe in creating an environment for students that focuses on their academic, social, emotional, physical and safety needs. To meet this goal Lackamas students and staff participate in the following activities:
Our beautiful historic school was built in 1914 and holds all the charm and warmth of years past. Lackamas is an outdoor campus where students, staff, and visitors enjoy visits from bald eagles flying overhead and the opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors each day in our rural setting. We love our little school outside of town and can’t wait to welcome you to our community of learners.
