Sexton Mountain Elementary School is named for Edward Sexton, an early settler of the Tualatin Valley. A native of Ohio, Sexton arrived in Oregon in the fall of 1850 and secured his donation land claim three years later. His name was given to the mountain near his claim. Sexton Mountain Elementary School opened its doors 136 years later in 1989.
The $6.3 million facility was designed to meet the unique educational needs of each student who attends the school. All classrooms share a common area that can be used for both small group activities and large group presentations. Classrooms are also adjacent to the library. The gymnasium and cafeteria sit side by side, separated by a moveable wall to accommodate large audiences for school or community activities. We currently serve 480 students in kindergarten through fifth grade.
