Sexton Mountain Elementary School

Our Story:

Sexton Mountain was named after Edward S Sexton. He was an early settler of the Tualatin Valley. A native of Ohio, Sexton arrived in Oregon in the fall of 1850 and secured his claim in Washington County in 1853. His name was given to the mountain near his donation land claim and within those boundaries 136 years later the Beaverton School District’s newest elementary school had been built. Sexton Mountain rises directly east of the school site. 

Sexton Mountain Elementary’s mission is to nurture the hearts and challenge the minds of all of our learners every day.

Sexton Mountain Elementary School first opened its doors in September 1989 with 540 students.
