​​​About Shelton School District

Shelton, nestled in a moderate alpine and marine setting, is located in Mason County on Puget Sound’s 
Oakland Bay and is the southeastern gateway to the Olympic Peninsula.  Mason County is one of the fastest growing counties in Washington, hosting both Hood Canal and Puget Sound waters.

Shelton is located in a wonderfully diverse setting, serving the Skokomish and Squaxin Island Indian nations 
and a growing Latino population.
Shelton, the county seat, is a community of over 9,000 that is diversified and offers unique opportunities.  Industries closely tied to the surrounding woods and water are lumber, evergreens, shellfish, and Christmas tree farming.  In addition, Shelton has developed a strong aerospace support industry.  There is abundant recreation in varying forms including golf, hiking, fishing, hunting, water sports, and camping.

A wide range of cultural activities and urban amenities are also available locally and in nearby 
Olympia, Tacoma, and Seattle.

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.
