Snoqualmie Valley School District The Snoqualmie Valley School District is located in the Cascade mountain foothills in Washington State approximately 30 miles east of Seattle. It covers more than 400 square miles and serves the communities of Snoqualmie, North Bend, Fall City and surrounding areas of unincorporated King County, making it one of the geographically largest school districts in the state.
The district serves about 7,000 students and families with six elementary schools, two middle schools, one comprehensive high school, and one alternative school. The percentage of students on free and reduced lunches is approximately 10%.
Once a rural district reliant on a now diminishing timber industry, the valley is quickly becoming a bedroom community to accommodate the growth of nearby suburbs, but is without a local industrial or economic base. The growth over the past decade has brought with it a more than 30% increase in the student population.
Three important keys to our district's success are evident: strong, effective leadership; the readiness of the community to support and encourage change; and emphasis on the whole school system.
