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.
Timberline Middle School
New Middle School – Redmond Ridge
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!

When Principal Heidi Paul and a small group of teachers started planning to open a new middle school, they started with a mission to create a place where students wanted to come back to school every day.
During a Grand Opening Ceremony on October 11, elected officials praised the building and the staff who have been working for more than a year to welcome students to their new school.
TMS students welcomed district staff and School Board members Siri Bliesner and Cassandra Sage to judge costumes during their Timberline Games, which followed their Grand Opening Ceremony. The field was filled with team-building activities to help the school build a positive culture.
Hundreds of students, staff, parents and dignitaries gathered to celebrate the grand opening of Timberline Middle School on October 11. See more photos.
Welcome to the PACK! Three TMS students shared what they like about their new school: large, writeable desks and walls, space to socialize with friends, and classrooms for electives like robotics and foods.
