Just 15 years ago, 8,644 students attended 13 schools in the District. Today, with the opening of Grand Ridge in 2006, over 16,000 students build their futures in 24 schools.
Drawn by the allure of a beautiful region in which to live and a school district with a reputation for quality education, hundreds of new families have made this region their home.
Because community and business have supported construction bonds, students today have modern and well-equipped schools and high quality teachers (more than half of Issaquah School District teachers have advanced degrees).
Schools in the District today were originally built in their current locations during the years listed to the right. Community support of construction bonds and capital levies has made additions and remodels possible.
Echo Glen Children's Center is Washington's juvenile detention center. It houses young offenders from around the state while they serve their sentences. Issaquah School District partners with the state to ensure that, while at Echo Glen, these students have an opportunity for quality education.
Echo Glen's innovative programs to foster student responsibility include a canine training program, and Caring through Sharing involvement.
