Besides the traditional favorites like tetherball and four square, students at Dickinson Elementary School and Explorer Community School enjoyed another game at recess this past spring: chess.
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is located between Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains, to the east of Seattle. Covering 76 square miles, LWSD is the public school district for the cities of Kirkland and Redmond, as well as about half of Sammamish. On the north end of the district, some Bothell and Woodinville residents also attend our schools. The district map shows school locations and boundaries.
Each student will graduate prepared to lead a rewarding, responsible life as a contributing member of our community and greater society.
Every student Future Ready:
- Prepared for college
- Prepared for the global workplace
- Prepared for personal success
