Fife School District is located east of the City of Tacoma in the Puyallup Valley in Washington State. The district includes three cities -- Fife with a population of 2,860, Milton with a population of 5,000, and a portion of Edgewood. The district also includes the unincorporated areas of Trout Lake, Jovita, and Fife Heights. A part of the Port of Tacoma is included in the district.
There is easy access to the district from the Fife/Milton exit #137 off Interstate 5, between Tacoma and Seattle.
Because of its attractive location and extensive single and multiple dwelling units, many residents live in the district but work in surrounding neighborhoods, towns, and cities. There is a large suburban community, a smaller but important rural element, and a growing commercial center.
In February of 2010 the patrons of the district approved a four-year educational programs and operations levy with a 67.18% yes vote and a four-year technology levy with a 67.25% yes vote. This is indicative of the community support for our district.
The district continues to make the success of each individual student its highest priority and is a proud member of the Schlechty Center's Standard Bearer Network.
