We are making some changes for the 2022-23 school year
The Bremerton School District is pleased to announce some exciting school and leadership changes for the upcoming school year!
Coming soon: Naval Avenue Early Elementary School
Naval Avenue Early Learning Center is transitioning to a (K-5) elementary school next year. This means 4th graders at West Hills Stem Academy (WHSA) who live in the Naval Avenue attendance area will return to Naval Avenue for 5th grade for the 2022-23 school year rather than being bussed to WHSA.

West Hills STEM Academy to serve PK-5

It is Education Support Professionals Week!
Who are our education support professionals? These are the hard working people that prepare school meals, transport our students to school safely, and help in the classroom (paraeducators). They include dedicated staff members who are often behind-the-scenes such as our technology team and our custodial, maintenance and grounds crews. Education support professionals include our office staff both in our schools and in our district office, as well as our health services team and our security staff. We appreciate ALL of of our Education Support Professionals (also known as Classified Staff). Thank you for all you do!
