All Lake Washington School District students have the right to public education. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Plyler vs. Doe (457 U.S. 202 (1982)) that undocumented children and young adults have the same right to attend public primary and secondary schools as do U.S. citizens and permanent residents. Lake Washington does not ask for or collect immigration status information.
Lake Washington School District 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 map below gives an overview of school locations and boundaries. For more specific information about what school your child will attend and printable boundary maps for individual schools, see the Attendance Areas page.
The interactive district map below is currently unavailable. We are aware of this issue and are working to fix it as quickly as possible. To search for the school your child(ren) will attend, please use the School Assignment & Bus Finder.
