Puyallup School District


The Puyallup School District in Washington state encompasses 37 schools, including 23 elementary schools, 7 middle schools, 5 high schools, and 2 alternative schools. The district serves a diverse student population with varying academic performance and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Among the standout schools in the district, Puyallup High School ranks 105th out of 442 high schools in Washington and has a 4-star rating, with strong test scores and a relatively low student-teacher ratio. Fruitland Elementary and Spinning Elementary also excel, ranking 181st and 284th out of 1,169 elementary schools in the state, respectively, with exceptional test scores across multiple grade levels.

However, the data reveals significant variation in performance across the district. While some schools, like Firgrove Elementary and Stewart Elementary, struggle with low test scores and high poverty rates, the alternative schools, such as Puyallup Online Academy and Puyallup Open Doors/POD, face unique challenges with lower graduation rates and higher dropout rates. The data suggests a strong correlation between poverty and academic performance, highlighting the need for targeted interventions to ensure all students in the Puyallup School District have access to a high-quality education.
