It was the summer of 1870 when a group of citizens from the small settlement of Eureka, Washington (which would come to be known as Hockinson) gathered together for the purpose of establishing a public school. From this desire to educate young people in the community, a school board was born, and the seeds of Hockinson School District had been planted.
Today, 150 years since that fateful meeting, Hockinson School District carries on a tradition of preparing all students for lifelong success. With a commitment to providing the highest quality education to all of our students, we're proud of our ability to offer a wide variety of academic pathways and of our high graduation rate, which is above 94 percent. The district takes pride in being a responsible steward of public resources and is dedicated to maintaining our facilities.
None of the district's successes would be possible without our dedicated teachers, staff and members of the Hockinson community. We are proud of where we've been, and are excited for what is to come.
