District Focus


North Wasco County School District is pleased to announce that we are seeking qualified applicants for the position of Maintenance I. 


We are very proud of our District and the teachers, administrators, and support staff that provides the best education possible for the children of our community.  Thank you for seeking this opportunity to be part of our team.  


District Mission: “Graduating all students to be college and career ready; challenging, inspiring, and empowering them to be healthy and productive citizens.”


The Gorge Lifestyle: 


The phrase Gorge Lifestyle alone speaks volumes. Located along the banks of the mighty Columbia River, just 84 miles east of Portland, The Dalles is the eastern gateway to the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area.  Outdoor enthusiasts find the Gorge to be a perfect environment to pursue wind, snow, and whitewater sports, road and mountain biking, hunting, fishing, hiking, golf and more!  Serving as a center of Native American trade for over 10,000 years and the end of the Oregon Trail, history buffs will find the area steeped in history and culture. The Dalles has a quaint and historic small town feel, with a population just over 13,000. Boasting a mere 14 inches of rain annually, The Dalles is home to bountiful agricultural products, including world-renowned cherries, grapes and wheat. It is home to Columbia Gorge Community College, which offers the first wind-power training program in the Pacific Northwest, Google’s Data Center, numerous orchards, vineyards, wineries, craft breweries and a thriving business community.
