Organizational History

Willamina School District was officially recognized in 1907. Since the beginning of the 20th century, Willamina and Grand Ronde schools have served students of Yamhill and Polk counties along with portions of Tillamook and Lincoln counties. Our community has maintained its rural, small town America feel. Economically, we have an emphasis on timber and sustainable agriculture. We also have a collaborative partner with the Confederated Tribe of the Grand Ronde. Though uphold three core values: respect the earth, respect each other, and appreciate education. We are proud to be the home of the Bulldogs! 

Educational Philosophy

We strive to have our parents, teachers, and community members actively involved on our schools.
