Back to School: Pahlisch School District Guide

Ah, summer. It’s the season of sunshine, pool parties, backyard barbecues . . . and moving vans? Statistics say yes! It’s estimated that nearly 45% of annual U.S. moves occur between May and August. And common sense supports the data. The summer months are usually more flexible for many people, and families want to settle into a new home before the school year starts. If your family is considering moving to the Pacific Northwest — or a new city if you’re already a PNW local — you may have lots of questions about the region’s many school districts. Have no fear; we can help you find some answers! With forty years of experience building homes and designing neighborhoods in Oregon
