Our School

Mary M. Knight School District was established in 1924.
We are located in Matlock, WA, which is about 30 minutes from Shelton or Elma. We have one Elementary School and one combined Jr. and Sr. High School serving approximately 200 students. Our experienced, skilled teaching staff works together as a team to guide your child through his or her academic journey. Come visit us!

Mission Statement:

"Our mission is to provide an enriching, positive, challenging and safe environment with support from staff, students, parents, and the community."

Our Philosophy & Vision:

At Mary M. Knight School we believe that students have the right to learn in a safe environment free from physical and emotional harm. Staff, students, parents, and administrators make this environment a reality when operating under the premise that everyone should be treated with respect and dignity. Behaviors that help students grow and mature will be encouraged. Behaviors or actions, which interfere with another person's opportunity to grow and learn, will not be tolerated.

Every child will have the confidence, motivation and preperation to be a successful participant in family and civic life.


Mary M. Knight School District is committed to a harassment and bully free educational experience.
