Priding itself on great education for its children and youth, the FME area provides a top-notch public school system and one private school.
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.
The district enrollment is approximately 3,500 students. The district has six schools:
Fife High School
Grades 10-12 | Principal, Ron Ness
Columbia Junior High School
Grades 8-9 | Principal, Mark Robinson
Surprise Lake Middle School
Grades 6-7 | Principal, Mark Beddes
Endeavour Intermediate School
Grades 2-5 | Principal, Josh Goodman
Hedden Elementary School
Grades 2-5 | Principal, Don Sims
Discovery Primary School

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.
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.
