La Center, Washington is a quaint bedroom community located approximately 30 miles north of Portland, Oregon.  Incorporated in 1909, La Center is situated along the East Fork of the Lewis River near the foothills of the Cascade Mountain Range.  La Center’s ideal location offers the benefits of small town living with convenient access to Vancouver, Washington and Portland, Oregon.

 

The schools of La Center serve as a hub for the La Center community. The facilities are used from early morning until late at night for both student instruction and community events and activities.  Our diversified learning opportunities include Advanced Placement, Running Start, the La Center Home School Academy, and award-winning music, drama and athletic programs.  Parents and community members actively support the mission of La Center School District through their involvement in our school programs and active volunteerism.
