LWSD middle school band program

Lake Washington School District has a strong and active middle school band program, with classes for everyone from beginners to students with years of experience.

LWHS Dance Team

Dance teams from Eastlake High School (EHS), Lake Washington High School (LWHS) and Redmond High School (RHS) scored high marks at a December dance competition.

LWHS topping out

The last steel beam for Lake Washington High School’s classroom addition was placed during a topping out ceremony on December 4. The last beam is traditionally accompanied by an American flag and an evergreen branch.

    Learn more about the auxiliary gymnasium and commons space planned at Lake Washington High School. A community information night is set for February 5 at 6 p.m. in the LWHS Commons. Construction on the auxiliary spaces is scheduled to begin this summer.

    This will be an open-house style poster session. Feel free to drop by any time during this one-hour event.

    Construction on 20 additional classrooms has already begun. The new classroom wing will open in fall 2020.

    Building on Success: A Year in Review 2019

    The year 2019 was one to remember: We celebrated the grand openings of Timberline Middle School and the newly rebuilt Peter Kirk and Margaret Mead elementary schools. Progress continued on the remaining 2016 bond projects: Juanita High School and Old Redmond Schoolhouse. Construction also began on the addition at Lake Washington High School, funded by the Capital Projects Levy passed by voters in April 2019.

    Thank you to the communities of Lake Washington School District. With your ongoing support, we are providing students with great places to learn!
