We’re on a mission to ensure that every child in Port Townsend Public Schools is fully engaged and supported in achieving academic excellence.

The Port Townsend Education Foundation exists for the singular purpose of promoting innovative, outcome-driven classroom projects that energize teachers, motivate students and involve the community in supporting curriculum-based and place based learning. 

Over the past ten years, PTEF has raised nearly $400,000 for teacher-generated grant projects aimed at enhancing student achievement.  

Port Townsend public schools are critical to the economic health and overall vitality of our hometown. We at PTEF believe in a collective imperative to provide every child with an excellent education, one that is dynamic and rigorous and one that provides opportunities for students to develop academic discipline as well as discover and explore their passions.

We are dedicated to helping build and sustain highly quality public schools that prepare our students for college, career and the broader world.
