About Us

Rochester School District is located in Thurston County, approximately 20 miles south of Olympia, right off Interstate 5. Rochester is a beautiful country, bedroom community with tremendous recreational, cultural, and social activities readily available within the local and surrounding areas. Our economy is fueled by agriculture, logging, public service, and industry in nearby communities. We are located approximately halfway between Seattle and Portland, 90 miles from White Pass Ski Resort, and only 60 miles from the ocean beaches.

Rochester School District is committed to the education of the community’s youth. We have an enrollment of approximately 2300 students in five schools. Our school district takes great pride in developing educational programs that prepare students for a successful adult life. As a result of this pride and commitment, each member of Rochester’s educational family sets high self-performance expectations. When the occasion necessitates, the district searches for committed, quality professionals to add to its staff. Our mission is to provide a quality education that will empower our individual students to become caring, competent, responsible citizens who value education as a lifelong process.
