Brinnon is a small, rural town with a constant population of about 800 in the winter and approximately 1000 in the summer. We also have a four legged population of elk. You'll frequently see the elk walking through town and our community members are used to sharing the road with them.
The community of Brinnon is located on the beautiful shores of Hood Canal, and borders the majestic Olympic National Forest and Park on the west.
The community has a State Park located along the Dosewallips River and State Highway 101 runs north and south through the school district.
The school is one of the major employers in the area. The majority of the businesses in the area cater to the tourist industry.
The Brinnon School District continues to make a significant commitment to education and the integration of technology into the classroom curriculum.
Many of our teachers and classified staff have been in the community for many years; some have spent their own elementary years attending the Brinnon School. They are well connected with the community and provide the foundation for our community school.
Volunteers in the school are always welcome and are a valuable part of the community. Use the following link for an Application: Volunteer Instructions and Application
