Why Choose Eatonville?
Eatonville is majestically placed at the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. Through community foresight and effort, the town has kept its small town personal flavor and enhanced its community commitment to educational excellence and positive civic involvement.
You can access Paradise, near Mt. Rainier, directly up the highway. We are within an hour of many diverse activities including skiing, hiking, beaches, large city culture, and professional sports. Nearby White Pass is a first-class ski area with beautiful scenery to enjoy in both winter and summer.
How do I know if I live in the Eatonville School District?
To learn if you are an Eatonville School District resident, check the Pierce County Assessor's website.
Which school will my student attend?
Students in the district are assigned to an attendance area school based on their home address. Please contact our transportation department at 360-879-1900 to verify your address.
Can I attend a different school?
Each year we allow district families to submit an application for a school that is not their attendance area school. This is called an In-District Transfer. We also allow out of district transfers on a space available basis.
