  • Dan Goldman August 2014 - Greetings all HRCSD staff members,

    Just when you were starting to relax, here comes the "dreaded letter!" I hope you've been enjoying the summer break, you're recharging those batteries, and you're looking forward to the school year ahead.

Located in the beautiful Hood River Valley, the Hood River County School District provides exceptional opportunities for students. Thanks to strong community support, our schools offer full-day kindergarten, experienced and expert staff, extracurricular programs at middle and high schools, and a wide range of college-credit and advanced-placement courses. More than 80 percent of our graduates pursue education beyond high school. We have recently invested $25 million to increase energy efficiency, add classrooms and upgrade key components of our school buildings. Come check us out!
