About our District

The Snohomish School District is located in Snohomish County in the State of Washington in the United States of America.


We are nestled in the heart of the Pacific Northwest, a short drive from either the blue waters of the Puget Sound or the snow-capped Cascade Mountains. Located only 30 miles north of Seattle, Snohomish is a charming semi-rural community with easy access to the cultural and entertainment events of the greater Seattle area.
