An area business magazine talks about why families prefer North Clackamas Schools. North Clackamas offers a wide range of programs. Elementary music, PE, & counseling remain a priority in every school. Middle schools focus on rigorous core academics, balanced with elective choices. High school students have an array of choices, from the state's largest career-technical program to numerous AP, IB & college credit classes. High schools offer a full slate of performing arts programs, with eight of the nine band, orchestra & choir programs qualifying for last year's state competition.
