Enjoy this bird’s-eye view of the new schools opening in six months: Timberline Middle School (the new middle school at Redmond Ridge); Rebuilt and enlarged Peter Kirk Elementary and Margaret Mead Elementary; and the first phase of rebuilt and enlarged Juanita High School. We have also posted updated photos of the interior remodel happening at Old Redmond Schoolhouse. The building will open with 10 preschool classrooms in the fall.


Weather impacts: The district is working with our partners to ensure projects stay on schedule despite February’s record snowfall.
