If you live in Lake Washington School District (LWSD) and your child will be five years old on or before August 31, 2018, it is time to register them for Kindergarten. Registration takes place at your neighborhood school.

LWSD holds an open enrollment period once each year for parents who want their children to attend a school other than their neighborhood school. Parents may apply between February 1-28 for a change to the school assignment for the 2018-19 school year for students in grades 1-12.

Growing Together, Serving our Community

Ever-Growing...and Building on Success

It’s official! Lake Washington is now the 3rd largest district in the state. We are proud to be #3!

We are proud to now serve 29,008 students. Lake Washington school district is student centered, learning focused, results oriented, and community connected, and we are proud of the fact that so many families enroll their students in our schools.

Student enrollment continues to rapidly grow. Our 2016-17 enrollment has increased by 1,178 students from 2015-16, and only Spokane and Seattle School Districts are now larger than Lake Washington. As we grow, we want to ensure that Lake Washington continues to be a high performing and successful school district.

"It’s official! Lake Washington is now the 3rd largest district in the state. We are proud to be #3!"
- Dr. Traci Pierce, Superintendent.

Through community support and successful passage of levies and bonds, the district is “Building on Success,” which is the name for our long-term plan to continue to build schools and provide quality learning environments and experiences for our ever-growing number of students.

We have developed a short video and dedicated webpages focused on “Building on Success.” I invite you to visit the webpage and view the video to learn more.

We are proud to be LWSD!
