The Port Costa School served the community of Port Costa, California from 1911 until it was closed in 1966 due to consolidation. It served children from First to Sixth grades. For about 20 years, the district used the school as a warehouse for books, furniture and other surplus property. The building was purchased from the John Swett Unified School District in 1988 by the Port Costa Conservation Society (PCCS), an all-volunteer non-profit organization. It is currently being restored and used as a community center for Port Costa, California
