Walkthrough of the Design for the New Thomas Jefferson High School

Star Lake Elementary and Totem Middle School

Star Lake Elementary and Totem Middle School are moving steadily through the design process and preparing for construction to begin in 2020. During a recent Scholar Advisory to the Superintendent meeting, students gave feedback to the design team for these two schools, sharing their thoughts about what color schemes they'd prefer inside the stairwells of the new building.

Mirror Lake, Wildwood, and Lake Grove Elementary Schools

We have been working hard towards acquiring the permits needed to move forward with construction on the new Wildwood, Lake Grove and Mirror Lake elementary schools. We have received the necessary permits, and we are moving forward with construction at all three schools. We are working with key stakeholders to develop an adjusted schedule for the opening of these schools.


Take a look at the photos below to see what each school construction site looked like earlier this month.
