Glacier Middle School
The 2016 bond provided funds to build a new middle school with capacity for 950 students on the district-owned Glacier site in SeaTac. Thank you for providing community input, responding to design ideas at community meetings and serving on the planning, naming and design review committees. School opened on time, September 4, 2019. The grand opening celebration was October 24, 2019.
Site Location: 2450 South 142nd Street, SeaTac
Demolition and site work on the new Glacier Middle School began in 2017. The new school opened September 2019.

Originally the home of Glacier High School from 1960 to 1980, the aging buildings were demolished in 2017 after a last walk through by Glacier alums and former staff. A new 950-student middle school is being built on the site to alleviate overcrowding and help reduce class sizes in elementary schools.
Students stole the show—even from the gleaming new building—at the Glacier Middle School Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting October 24. Read more about the event and see photos.
