Welcome to the Fern Ridge School District’s (FRSD) website. FRSD is a 4-A school district located 12-15 minutes west of Eugene-Springfield, on the western and southern tips of Fern Ridge Lake (map). The school district’s size, rural setting, proximity to Eugene-Springfield, Fern Ridge Lake and quick access to the Oregon Coast makes FRSD an attractive place to live and raise children.
FRSD encompasses 214 square miles, serving children from the surrounding communities of Walton, Noti, Veneta and Elmira with a combined population of approximately 9,700. FRSD is comprised of four schools – Elmira Elementary School, Veneta Elementary School, Fern Ridge Middle School, and Elmira High School. The District also has one charter school, West Lane Technical Learning Center, as well as other optional educational opportunities.
The Fern Ridge School District invites you to work with us as we develop and maintain positive learning environments that allow for educational experiences to “provide excellence for every student so that each will reach their greatest potential.”
