Mabton is located in the fertile Yakima Valley approximately 43 miles southeast of Yakima, Washington, and 45 miles west of the Tri-Cities. It is in the heart of the state’s hops, and grape-growing region. Mabton is, home to a variety of crops including apples, grapes for a rapidly expanding wine industry, hops, asparagus, sweet corn, and cherries. It has easy access to outdoor recreation including snow skiing in the winter and water sports on the Columbia and Snake Rivers in the summer. Mabton developed into a town when the Northern Pacific Railway arrived in the area around 1884. The first store and post office opened in 1892. By 1904, it had more than a dozen businesses and a newspaper. The town of Mabton was officially incorporated in 1905. Today, residents are primarily employed in agriculture. 

The Mabton School District serves more than 700 mostly Hispanic students. Nearly one-third of the students are from migrant families, a situation that requires exceptional skill and commitment from both teachers and administrators.
