Forest Grove School District, Forest Grove, Oregon
Are you the next Superintendent of Forest Grove?
Nestled in the heart of Oregon’s Tualatin Valley and just twenty-five miles west of Portland is Forest Grove, where residents experience the convenience of city amenities while savoring the tranquility of a small-town lifestyle. The historic downtown enjoys tree-lined streets, boutiques, and cozy cafes in a tight knit community offering a unique blend of natural beauty, community warmth, and cultural richness. Nearby, local wineries and vineyards abound, and you can enjoy a bike ride on our city-wide and regional trail system. There is a vibrant arts scene including galleries, local theater productions, and performances and exhibits on the campus of Pacific University – the number one private research university in the Pacific Northwest.
Here, you will find Forest Grove School District, serving a diverse community of just under 6,000 students in ten schools in the communities of Forest Grove, Cornelius, Dilley, and Gales Creek. We are big enough to offer a comprehensive curriculum with a wide variety of opportunities, yet small enough to build strong connections with staff, students, and families. The high school boasts robust CTE and STEM opportunities and many advanced placement classes, and technology integration is robust across the district. Importantly, FGSD is known nationally for its inclusive practices for all students. Take a minute to get to know FGSD, where we prepare our diverse community of students to thrive in a global society.

Anchored by our maxims: Care Deeply, Stand Strong, and Adapt and Grow, we are a community where everyone plays a role in shaping the educational experience of our children.
