Shelton School District is unique in that we have four feeder school districts. These feeder school districts do not have all grade levels in their school district. Students from Hood Canal, Pioneer and Southside all attend Shelton High School. Students from Grapeview have a choice of going to either Shelton or North Mason school districts.
