Focus On Learning:

The Chehalis tribal education department gives Native families and individuals opportunities for continued academic growth and success.

We extend our services to tribal members, native americans and our local community. This promotes strong relationships between families, students and educators.

Vision Statement:

“We, the people of the sand, are entrusted with the land, our heritage, and our people. We strive to live in harmony with our world and teach our children to walk in a good way. We have always educated our children, and will continue to teach them, weaving together cultural knowledge and tribal values with contemporary education to invoke, inspire, and strengthen our community for the benefit of us all.”
