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.



Lake Washington School District SAT scores well above state and national averages

New test makes comparisons with past years difficult

Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District (LWSD) students continue to score higher on standardized tests than state and national averages. They scored on average 67 points higher on the SAT reading, writing and math test than the state and national averages during the last school year.

However, because a new SAT was given starting in January 2016, the averages cannot easily be compared to previous years.

“These results show that our students and teachers are working hard every day,” noted Dr. Traci Pierce, superintendent. “I am proud of Lake Washington students, teachers, administrators and our community for these results.”

A total of 977 students took the SAT this year. This number is down from a district high of 1,135 in 2015.
