ABOUT AMITY SCHOOL DISTRICT & AMITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Amity School District serves approximately 750 students in three schools, located in Yamhill County, 8 miles south of McMinnville and about 20 minutes northwest of Salem. The local economy is one based on agriculture and viticulture. Our location allows for an easy commute into Salem, McMinnville and Newberg. Amity Schools are the hub of the community and serve as a gathering place for both school and non-school activities. Amity School District enjoys the support of the Amity Education Foundation, which provides financial support for our teachers, students, and graduates (via scholarships). In 2022, the community approved a capital construction bond in the amount of $29.4 million, which will allow the district to move out of the old middle school facility, remodel part of the high school, add safety features at both the high and elementary schools, and build a new competition gym for the high school. Amity School District sits within the Amity City limits and enjoys a very good relationship with city government and civic organizations.
Amity Elementary School has a dedicated team of teachers and classified personnel, both experienced and developing. The school boasts growing programs and a cadre of specialists supporting students and teachers in the areas of PE, Art, Music, Science, Math, Reading, and Social-Emotional Learning. Our programs continue to evolve and grow and include an outdoor school and an instrumental music program for 5th grade students, an art gallery, Battle of the Books, STEAM Club, an MTSS program, and more!

Amity Elementary School has a dedicated parent/teacher partnership through Amity Parents and Teachers Together (APaTT). Well attended community events include Back to School Open House, family nights, jog-a-thon, the winter program, Scholastic book fairs, and music programs. Amity Elementary students and staff enjoy additional strong community support through volunteering and fundraising, both of which have allowed us to provide many special programs for our students.
