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.
Thanks to a construction camera on site, you can check on the progress of our new middle school every day!
Project Update | Glacier Middle School
Our contractor, Bayley Construction is at work on site. Contractors will be grading, installing sewer pipes and electrical conduits, and pouring footings. They will place concrete foundations and stem walls, plus excavate for the storm water retention vault.
Highline school board members selected names for the two new schools on Wednesday: Glacier Middle School and Des Moines Elementary School.
The Middle School Naming Committee and the Elementary School Naming Committee each submitted a short list of names to the board for introduction at the April 4 board meeting along with a short description of the process. The board will take action at the April 18 board meeting.
A steady drizzle didn’t dampen enthusiasm as Highline Public Schools broke ground for a new middle school in SeaTac on April 4, 2018.
It’s time to name the two new schools we are building in Highline. Our naming committees want your feedback. Pick your favorite names for the new elementary school in Des Moines and the new middle school in SeaTac. Both schools will open fall 2019.
