Last day of school remains Friday, June 23

Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District (LWSD) has finalized plans to make up for the one day missed due to the November 30 snow day. The 2022-23 calendar has been modified to reflect this change:  

  • Tuesday, May 30: change from a non-school day to a full day for students

Feedback opportunity open 12/19/2022-1/10/2023
The Lake Washington School District (LWSD) Start Time Committee is asking for your feedback about two options for start time changes.

In October 2022, a Boundary Committee began the work to make recommendations for school attendance boundaries in the Lake Washington area. Neighborhood boundaries for all elementary and middle schools in the Lake Washington High School feeder pattern could change, beginning in the 2023-24 school year for elementary school students and in 2024-25 for middle school students.

    Redmond, Wash. – Sixty Lake Washington School District (LWSD) high school seniors have been named semifinalists in the 68th annual National Merit Scholarship Program. The National Merit Scholarship Corporation announced the semifinalists yesterday. 

    Sixteen thousand high school seniors nationwide qualified. About 15,000 semifinalists are expected to advance to the Finalist level. Nearly half will win a National Merit Scholarship. These students will be able to continue in the competition for 7,250 National Merit Scholarships, worth nearly $28 million. 

    Students qualified for these awards by completing the 2021 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The semifinalists include the highest scoring students in each state. The semifinalists represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors.
