Our School » About


Our School
With much of the school being naturally lit, Desert View Elementary is a bright and beautiful building. The staff at Desert View is committed to fostering an environment where students are valued, loved and feel they are part of the school family.
Our mission statement: Through teaching the whole child, we provide a safe and caring environment where high expectations and high levels of learning for all students produce academic excellence and lifelong learners. 

Desert View Elementary serves approximately 450 students in kindergarten through fifth grade in Hermiston, Oregon.
Our District
The Hermiston School District is the largest district in Eastern Oregon, exceeding 5,300 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.
