Corbett School District (CSD) is a leading K-12 public school district located at the mouth of the beautiful Columbia River Gorge in Corbett, Oregon, just 20 miles east of Portland.
Founded in the first part of the 20th century, Corbett School District continues to honor its traditions of the past by providing challenging opportunities for students in academics, fine arts, sports and community service.
The district’s schools have always existed for the benefit of its students. At Corbett School District, the child is the center of everything we do. We honor the individual by helping students explore, discover and grow their passions – whether it be in mathematics, music or science. It is a place where students excel.
What does it mean to be a Corbett student? We know that to be successful, students need to be well-rounded individuals who not only excel at academics, but know how to care for themselves, care for others in the community, and understand their place in the world.
At Corbett, students ask questions, take risks. Corbett students are confident leaders who respects others and takes responsibility for the life they lead. They will always be exceptional.
It all starts with our faculty and staff, who have a strong personal commitment to the students. We care for our students and are committed to providing the best possible learning environment – one that is welcoming, compassionate and engaging. Our teachers are passionate about what they teach and many hold advanced degrees in their field. Corbett School District leadership and staff are dedicated to helping students succeed. We are proud of who our students are, who they will become, and are honored to be part of their journey.
But it doesn’t end there. From our dedicated parent volunteers and community members who share, the alumnae who give back – to the strength of our board and support of our foundation – they are all part of the resourceful and close-knit Corbett community that is committed to supporting the vision of our schools and celebrating the uniqueness of every student.
In 2008, 90% of the school’s seniors received their high school diploma. Of 41 students, 37 graduated, 3 dropped out, and 1 received a modified diploma.
