Parkdale Elementary School
Parkdale Elementary is located at the base of Mt. Hood in the beautiful Upper Hood River Valley - 17 miles south of Hood River. Originally a high school, Parkdale now serves students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Additions to the original building were made in 1975 and 1995. Parkdale offers an extensive instructional program with emphasis on comprehensive approaches to reading instruction, cooperative learning, developmentally-appropriate practices, vocal music, the arts, physical education, hands-on science programs, and a self-contained computer lab. The school is supported by the Parent Teacher Association and a Community-Parent Volunteer Program whose members assist daily with children and staff.
