Corridor Elementary School

corridorThe Eugene School Board voted on June 3, 2020 to close Corridor Elementary School at the end of the 2019–20, with expressions of regret and sadness for the families who would be impacted. After multiple discussions and a virtual community forum to hear from parents, staff and community members, the decision was made in light of significantly decreased student enrollment at the small alternative elementary school and expected school funding shortfalls resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

Mission Statement:
To prepare all students to be productive members of a global society and to have children leave this school with a sense of self-worth, respect for all people and a zeal for lifelong learning.

Program Description:
Choice is the essence of Corridor—not only the choice to be here, but also opportunities throughout the day for students to choose how they will accomplish mastery of a certain skill. Students commit their mornings to reaching their highest academic potential and then engage in an extensive afternoon elective program. Here, teachers’ strengths and expertise are utilized to create a variety of curriculum enrichment classes that are designed to help students discover and develop talents, interests and self-esteem. The three C’s of Corridor are Community, Collaboration and Creativity.

School Highlights:

  • Annual musical production performed by all students
  • Curriculum-driven events and trips, such as Outdoor School, Central Oregon Lava Lands, oceanography, field trip to Dorris Ranch, Oregon Trail and young artists/authors workshops made possible by our supportive parent–teacher organization
  • Specialized units of study that teach history, social science and language arts with performance arts and public speaking components
  • Afternoon multi-age elective classes that include such offerings as touring choir, sewing and stitching projects, clay, magnets/motors, Lego robotics, bats, poetry, fables/fairy tales and puppet theater
  • Electives offered include Corridor Performing Choir, Jugglers and Armadill-OHS Dance Troupe
  • Student council organizes spirit days and community outreach projects

School Improvement Goals:

  • Increase student achievement in math and writing.
  • Continue to foster a safe, welcoming school environment for students, families and staff.

Other Information:
Distinctive characteristics of Corridor School include a high degree of all-staff collaboration, multi-aged grouping in the electives program, numerous field trips and other hands-on learning experiences, the annual musical production at the Hult Center, a sense of family and community that builds self-esteem, mutual respect and parent involvement in their children’s education.

Location Note:
Corridor Elementary School will relocate in 2020 to a wing of North Eugene High School at 200 Silver Lane, while the new North Eugene High School building is constructed.
