Parkside Elementary

Parkside Elementary provides world-class education in Tenino, Washington. You'll find our school campus 10 miles south of the Olympia, WA area. We are near the beautiful Tenino City Park. We begin each school year with the goal of teaching and inspiring our kids to be their very best. We dedicate every available resource to the support and education of our young people. One of our most important resources is our group of highly qualified teachers. In fact, many Parkside teachers have earned masters degrees and advanced certifications.

Parkside students develop a natural curiosity and love of learning. We offer a wide variety of educational opportunities to reach all personalities and learning styles, both inside and outside the classroom. We strive to guide and inspire our students. We honor the worth and potential of every child.

Our caring and cooperative community makes Parkside a truly special place. Our Parent Teacher Association is one of the most active in the state. Parkside is a community resource, where people come together, share ideas, and work for the benefit of our students.
