Hockinson is a really small town where you will get to know just about everyone in the town. I went to Hockinson Elementry, Middle, and High school and I had really close relationships with just about everyone in my grade. It was really emotional on our graduation day because that was the last time a lot of us would be going to school together after 13 years of going to school together. If you’re looking for a town where you will not only have your kids bond and make great friends, parents will also find lifetime friends out in Hockinson. It is however a small town, so there isn’t a lot in Hockinson itself but there are other towns near by with great restaurants and activities to partake in. Keep in mind that in a small town people may be a little up in your business, but I think people care about one another in this town and want to look after each other.

Good growing community. My family has lived here since 2005 and has loved the small community. Everyone helps and supports each other. It is growing so the schools are getting a little more crowded.
Hockinson is a pretty good community. Its lots of country and most of the people are pretty nice. The high-school is in a convenient location and I live about 10 minutes away from it.
