Welcome to Our New Website

We have updated the software so that it will display better on Internet Explorer and mobile devices. We have also taken this opportunity to reorganize our site. The "Quicklinks" are now in the menu at the top of the page. There you'll find some of our most popular pages. Departments and School Board are now found under the "District" menu. Our Schools links now take you directly to the newly designed school homepages. The "Teaching and Learning" section houses the pages related to student instruction. We hope you like our new site and come back often!

Welcome to Kelso School District


    Welcome back students and staff! 

    We are excited to see our students and staff back and to welcome those who are new to our classrooms. Our teaching and support staff are among the best anywhere and they are ready to work with families to meet the learning needs of our students. 

    We recognize that we work in service to one of our region’s best communities, a place that always comes together to support one another – especially when it is to support kids!  In Kelso, we are collectively committed to the success of our youth because we recognize they represent the future of our community.  In advance, thank you all for your support of this work and for your commitment to the success of our kids. We are looking forward to another great year ahead!
