The La Conner School District sits at the heart of the La Conner community, located in the northwestern part of Washington State, situated 55 miles north of Seattle and 75 miles south of Vancouver, B.C. Its boundaries include more than 100 square miles of land surrounded by the Skagit River, the Swinomish Channel, and Padilla and Skagit Bays. Serving approximately 700 students in its three schools on a central campus, the school district has benefited from a long history of incredible community support for levies and bonds. Home of the Swinomish Tribe, La Conner School District and the Tribal Community have created cooperative programs to help students develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to lifelong learning, to achieve personal enrichment, and to become responsible contributing individuals in this rapidly changing and evolving society.
La Conner residents enjoy a variety of outdoor recreational experiences from boating and fishing in the San Juan Islands and Skagit River to hiking and skiing on nearby Mount Baker. Cultural opportunities such as visiting one of La Conner's many historical landmarks, museums, or special events abound. La Conner, a destination community, also offers wonderful choices for fine dining and shopping.
