About Bend, Oregon
How are the schools in Bend

There is no doubt that Bend, Oregon, is a desirable place to call home. The lifestyle that Bend offers has led to healthy growth in the population throughout Central Oregon. Despite this growth, you will still feel a laid-back, small-town vibe, with friendly neighborhoods and communities.


Bend is nestled between the breathtaking Cascade mountains to the west and the arid desert to the east. The iconic Deschutes river meanders its way through the community and adds to the stunning scenery. With a semi-arid climate, you will experience all four seasons, including plenty of sun, snow, and blue skies.  


Recreational activities abound all year round. You do not need to travel far from your doorstep to find walking, running, or biking trails. There are plenty of rivers and lakes to kayak and paddle. During the winter months, opportunities for downhill skiing, nordic skiing, and snowshoeing are plentiful.
