Community invited to Juanita High School project open house

This LWSD YouTube clip was released in 2016 explaining the need for a new Juanita High.  

Redmond, Wash. – Lake Washington School District (LWSD) is “Building on Success.” (video) That’s the district’s plan to build schools and to provide quality learning environments. It is based on a set of recommendations  from a community-based Long-Term Facilities Planning Task Force. An April 2016 bond measure funds the first set of projects in that plan. One of those projects is to rebuild and enlarge Juanita High School to accommodate 500 more students.

Community members are invited to join LWSD staff for an update on the project. Plans to house classes during the construction will be covered. The meeting is scheduled for:
March 1, 2017, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Juanita High School
10601 N.E. 132nd Street, Kirkland, 98034
An open house format is planned. Posters that illustrate various aspects of the project will be set out around the room. LWSD staff and architects will be available to answer questions and gather feedback.

Updated design plans for the school incorporate community feedback gathered in September 2016 and the work of the School Construction Input Team (SCIT). The SCIT is comprised of parent, staff and community representatives; a student; and principal Gary Moed. They met four times with architects to develop values and design goals. They considered the many factors that make an excellent learning environment for students.
