Dry Creek Elementary School, located on the west side of Port Angeles, is the third largest elementary school in the Port Angeles School District, and was rebuilt in 1996. The facility supports kindergarten through grade six classrooms, as well as outdoor fields for district and community recreation.

The parents, friends of Dry Creek students and our community are all instrumental in providing the additional support that makes learning at Dry Creek motivating and rewarding. We are always looking for more volunteers, so that every child has an adult advocate for his or her personalized support.  This will allow us to continue our rich history of an elementary school that cares for kids and celebrates success.  Please call us at 360.457.5050.
