Our Schools

Mission: Our students will be prepared for and eager to accept the academic, occupational, personal, and practical challenges of life in a dynamic global environment.

Our enrollment has grown steadily over the years. In 2005, 14,800 students walked through the doors at 22 schools. Today, 24 schools house a student body of close to 21,000 students!

District will soon add additional capacity with the construction of two new elementary schools, a sixth middle school, and fourth comprehensive high school. We'd like to thank our community for supporting the 2016 school bond making these new building projects possible.

Drawn by the allure of a beautiful region in which to live and a school district with a reputation for quality education, hundreds of new families have made this region their home.

Because community and business have supported construction bonds, students today have modern and well-equipped schools and high quality teachers (more than half of Issaquah School District teachers have advanced degrees).

Schools in the District today were originally built in their current locations during the years listed below. Community support of construction bonds and capital levies has made additions and remodels possible.

Echo Glen Children's Center is a Washington state juvenile detention facility. It houses young offenders while they serve their sentences. At Echo Glen School, the Issaquah School District partners with the state to ensure that they have an opportunity for quality education while at the Children's Center.

Echo Glen's innovative programs to foster student responsibility include a canine training program, and Caring through Sharing involvement.
