Welcome to the Portola Valley School District

Welcome to the Portola Valley School District. Serving just over 500 children in grades TK/K-3 at Ormondale and grades 4-8 at Corte Madera, our schools are known across the region and state as excellent places for children to learn and grow. Our exceptional teachers, small class sizes, inspiring instructional programs, and dedicated parent volunteers have prepared generations of local children to succeed in high school, college, and careers. Our goal is to continue that proud tradition in 2023 and beyond.

PVSD Attendance Policy

School attendance is essential to every student’s success, and absences can easily lead to academic trouble and create gaps in relationships with friends. PVSD encourages all families to minimize absences. Parents are responsible for making sure their students attend school on a regular basis, on time, and align vacations and appointments with the school calendar to avoid unnecessary absences.
