Portola School
The first Portola Valley school stood here from 1894 until 1950, on land donated by Mrs. Andrew Hallidie. It replaced the Searsville School which was abandoned when the Searsville reservoir was created. It contained one classroom, two outer rooms a library alcove with one thousand books as well as a belfry. Many of its students walked or rode ponies from as far away as Skyline or Coal Mine Ridge. In the early years, school closed from December to March because of difficult travel. Enrollment ranged between 40 and 50 until after World War II when the increasing population required the construction of a modern four room school.
