The Fossil community and Fossil Charter School are nestled in a quiet valley of north central Oregon. Approximately 100 miles from any urban areas (The Dalles is about 90 miles, Bend about 110 miles), Fossil has approximately 470 residents, while the school district has a total of about 60 pupils, kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Fossil Elementary School currently has 26 students K-6, and Wheeler High School has 38 students  in grades 7-12. With a teaching staff of 9 and a support staff of 7, the Fossil schools offer a variety of programs. Academic programs at the high school include advanced courses in mathematics, social sciences and science, as well as courses in second language, fine arts and applied arts. We also have a computer technology program as well as a distance learning program where students can avail themselves of other advanced courses.

At our elementary school the class sizes are very small; they are all combination or blended classes (currently  Kindergarten, blended 1-2, blended 3-4 and blended 5-6)  and average seven students per teacher. We have a full computer lab, as well as computers on-line in all classrooms.  In addition, we are currently in process of aligning curriculum K-12 to the new Common Core State Standards and changing the paradigm of teaching.

At both of our schools, we offer a full slate of extra-curricular activities and sports, including football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, cross country, tennis and track. Wheeler High participates in the 1-A Big Sky League under a cooperative sports agreement with Condon High School. The Fossil community is a small, friendly place in which to live and go to school. It has several churches and a variety of activities for residents, both old and young, in which to participate.  The community is especially noted for its open fossil beds located behind the high school football field, and our easy access to the internationally famous John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
