Welcome to Pomeroy
"The Key to Friendly, Family Living" —This slogan has served as a greeting to those entering Pomeroy via Highway 12, as a mural adorning the grain bin on the east edge of town depicts the shape and interest areas of the county along with this time-honored mantra. Nestled between the foot of the Blue Mountains and the state of Oregon to the south and the Snake River to the north, and bordered by Columbia County to the west and Asotin County to the east, Pomeroy is the only incorporated city in Garfield County. As the 7th smallest of the 39 counties in Washington State, Garfield County occupies 710.55 square miles and population distribution is 3.4 persons per square mile.
With the least amount of population density in the state, you definitely have room to roam! As the county seat, Pomeroy serves a population of 2000. Pomeroy School District #110 currently employs 18.5 teachers, .5 counselors, and 2 administrators to serve 320 students in Kindergarten through twelfth grades.
A two-building facility, Pomeroy Elementary School and Pomeroy Jr./Sr. High School are located in the center of this agriculture community on 10th and Columbia Streets and 10th and Pataha Streets, respectively. Pomeroy Elementary School completed a $5 million remodel in 1998, and Pomeroy Jr./Sr. High School completed a $9 million remodel in 2012. The District office is located at 121 South 10th Street at the southern end of the Elementary School. The patrons of Garfield County consistently vote in favor of the schools, passing levies to provide funding for the District to provide enhanced programs and extra curricular opportunities for its students.
Students at Pomeroy have advanced curricular opportunities through partnerships with Lewis Clark State College and Walla Walla Community College. Advanced Placement or college course opportunities are offered in the areas of biology, calculus, chemistry, English, and statistics. Tech-prep credits are offered for vocational offerings articulated with Walla Walla Community College. In the Elementary School, advanced students are served through the Q-Lab program, as they extend learning opportunities presented in the regular classroom.
Telephone contacts may be made at (509) 843-3393 for the District Office, (509) 843-1651 for the Elementary School Office, or (509) 843-1331 for the High School Office.
