Welcome to the Neah-Kah-Nie School District. Our district office hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00-4:00. Our school district is located on the beautiful North Oregon Coast encompassing the communities of Bay City, Garibaldi, Rockaway Beach, Wheeler, Nehalem, and Manzanita. We have two elementary schools, Garibaldi Grade School and Nehalem Elementary School. The district also includes Neah-Kah-Nie Middle School and Neah-Kah-Nie High School. There are currently 710 students enrolled in the district. Our local newspapers include the North Coast Citizen and the Headlight Herald. There are many opportunities for outdoor recreation in our area including fishing, clamming, camping, surfing, crabbing, biking, climbing, and kite flying. You can participate in all these activities less than two hours from Portland.

Neah-Kah-Nie National Ocean Sciences Bowl Team Places 1st and 4th at the National Competition - A School Record
Proud doesn’t even begin to describe how the Neah-Kah-Nie National Ocean Sciences Bowl team coaches feel about this year’s team and their performance at the national competition. The NKN NOSB won both a 1st place trophy for their science experts briefing (SEB) and a 4th place trophy for the competition overall.
As Salmon Bowl champions representing Oregon, Idaho and southwest Washington, senior captain Branson Laszlo, seniors Chris Mills, Eric Clifford and Willa Childress, junior Nathan Imholt and coaches Beth Gienger and Peter Walczak traveled to Milwaukee, WI to compete against 24 other regional winners from around the nation.

Re: SCHOOL TELEPHONE NUMBER CHANGE
Our district has moved to an upgraded system allowing
for many more telephone lines to be accessed. Because
of the new system, Nehalem Elementary School has a
new telephone number, 503-355-3650.
This number will appear as the school’s caller ID.
Please start using our new school telephone number,
503-355-3650 immediately or our toll free number,
The old 503-368-5185 will ring through for a limited
time only. Teachers’ extensions have also changed. Please call the
school office or contact your student(s) teacher for new
