Our School » About


West Park Elementary was officially opened and dedicated in 1950. In the sixty plus years that followed, West Park students, staff and families built enthusiasm and pride that is still felt throughout the building. Partnerships formed by staff, students and families have created a rich learning environment where all students are provided with opportunities to grow academically, socially and physically in a safe and nurturing environment.

West Park Elementary serves approximately 570 students in kindergarten through fifth grade in Hermiston, Oregon.
Our District

The Hermiston School District is the largest district in Eastern Oregon, exceeding 5,500 students, and continues to experience steady enrollment growth. It serves students in grades kindergarten through 12 with a broad range of programs from foundational learning skills to comprehensive vocational programs to an exhaustive array of post-secondary college credit bearing opportunities. The school district includes a 9-12 senior high school, two 6-8 middle schools, five K-5 elementary schools, an alternative school, and a robust online learning program option for students and families.

Support for the school district has been strong from the community. In 2001 voters approved a $39 million building program which included the re-construction of the high school, an additional elementary school, and various district-wide renovations. The voters also approved a $69.9 million bond in 2008. The bond served to replace Armand Larive Middle School, West Park Elementary, and Sunset Elementary.
