Walla Walla, WA, 99362
Berney elementary originally opened its doors in 1904 as a four room school house serving students up to the eighth grade. It was a modern building with electric lights and central heating, but not running water. Berney school was named for U.H. Berney who served as chairman for the school district for over 25 years. Mr. Berney donated the land for our athletic field and the bell for the bell tower which is still in use today. Berney has a long standing tradition as a community school and we have many second and third generation Berney Bulldogs. We have a caring and committed staff that go above and beyond to make sure that our students succeed.

Sharpstein Elementary School
Walla Walla, WA, 99362
Every morning, our students are greeted with our principal's daily morning announcements: "Good morning, Sharpstein, home of the Stompers, where our core values are COMMUNITY, INTEGRITY, and PERSEVERANCE." Sharpstein is proud to be Washington State's oldest continuously-operating school, opening in 1898. We are proud of our beautiful building and grateful our community supported renovation rather than tearing it down and starting over. Walking in to our foyer, which is built around the original stone-arched entrance, is awe-inspiring. Sharpstein is a true neighborhood school, with a compact attendance area allowing many students to walk or ride their bike to school. We are within walking distance of Whitman College and Pioneer Park, and our students are able to use these community resources to support their learning. Visiting Whitman's observatory, or Pioneer Park's aviary are experiences our students look forward to.
