Established in 1875, the District's eight elementary schools currently serve 4,500 students in the cities of Anaheim, Buena Park, Cypress, and La Palma. Centralia School District was the first school district in California to provide free textbooks to students, and today is one of only three school districts in Orange County that is not "program improvement".

According to the 2010 Census, the District's resident population is 55,193 with a demographic of 34% Hispanic, 30% White, 29% Asian, 4% Black, and 3% Other/Mixed Race.

The District is most-recently known for their award-winning Food Services program and for having a campus with the largest school-wide standardized test score increase in the State of California between the 2012–13 and 2013–14 school years.

In 2011, the District's original silver school bell, used in Buena Park's first schoolhouse in 1889, was stolen.
