The Centralia School District is the largest district in Lewis County, with nearly 3,600 students. The district includes a traditional four-year high school, an alternative high school (Futurus), a two-year middle school, five primary/intermediate elementary schools.
We are dedicated to providing a quality education to all students through programs and facilities that Centralians are justly proud of.
Our Community
Located in scenic Southwest Washington, Centralia's  16,300 residents enjoy the beauty and activities offered by the great outdoors. Skiing, mountain climbing, hiking, fishing, boating, and ocean beaches are all within a 100-mile radius of Centralia. In addition, our location almost exactly between Seattle and Portland gives residents easy access to all that both metropolitan areas have to offer.

Centralia is home to the state's oldest continuously operating community college, which offers a wide variety of educational opportunities.
