2019-20 brings an 11th year of significant growth to the District. LWSD is now the second-largest district in the state, behind only Seattle Public Schools.
Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is located between Lake Washington and the Cascade Mountains. The district is east of Seattle and covers 76 square miles. LWSD is the public school district for the cities of Kirkland, Redmond and 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.
Each student will graduate prepared to lead a rewarding, responsible life as a contributing member of our community and greater society.
