An Exceptional Small School Environment

An Exceptional Small School Environment

State Line Elementary School is located in New Pine Creek, on the border of California and Oregon. New Pine Creek is a rural town of approximately 250 people, and the main industry is farming and ranching.
 
State Line Elementary School provides education for grades kindergarten through 5th in the Modoc Joint Unified School District. It serves children from the community of New Pine Creek. An interstate agreement with Lake County, Oregon, also allows Oregon students who live within one mile of the border, to attend our school.
 
Our low student-teacher ratio creates opportunities for giving students extra help or more academic challenges. We use peer tutors and have weekly Little Buddy/Big Buddy activities. Students participate in, and enjoy, annual outdoor education experiences through field trips to the coast, high desert, science museums, and more.

We provide instruction for students in an exceptional environment. The classroom hosts our daily small group, whole group, and focused academic activities. The school has one large classroom, a multi-use room, and a library. The multi-use room is utilized as the cafe, V.A.P.A. (Visual and Performing Arts) program room, and technology lab. The library is housed in a modular building adjacent to the main building.There is a playground with a grassy area and modern, safe play equipment.
