District Information

Anacortes School BoardCommunity BreakfastAMS Vision Team
Welcome to the Anacortes School District! Located on beautiful Fidalgo Island, Anacortes is a leader in public education, with a strong vision for teaching and learning. 

The District's strategic plan is anchored by five pillars: 
  • Quality Instruction and Curriculum
  • Partnerships
  • Social-Emotional Learning
  • Equity
  • Stewardship

District and school goals support these pillars. Our work together allows us to remain competitive with the best districts in the state. 

In 2017, our students ranked first among 32 districts in northwest Washington, based on state assessment scores across grades and subject areas. 

Anacortes schools have highly supportive families and community members. This partnership results in an incredible amount of volunteers in our schools each year.  In addition the Anacortes Schools Foundation, local service clubs, private foundations and individual citizens give generously to sustain and enrich learning opportunities for our students. This unique school/community partnership resulted in one of highest school levy “yes votes” in the State of Washington.
