• District Profile

    The Yakima School District is located primarily within the boundaries of the City of Yakima. Serving a diverse population of nearly 16,000 students, Yakima is the 20th largest district in Washington, the fourth largest in Eastern Washington, and the 2nd largest Latino-majority district in the state.

    One size doesn't fit all, especially when it comes to education. Every elementary school in the district provides full-day, everyday kindergarten classes; International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement programs at two high schools attract students from out of district; an already strong vocational program is growing every day with a new state-of-the-art skills center; and alternative offerings include Stanton Academy, Yakima Online! and various satellite programs.
