New High School #4

High School #4 - View to Southeast
A 4th Comprehensive High School for 1400 students in grades 9-12 will be built to reduce student populations at Issaquah and Skyline High Schools and meet the District's needs into the future.

The Issaquah School District has been approved by the Capital Projects Advisory Review Board to use Progressive Design Build on this project. The process brings the designer and builder team on earlier to help with a project's design and construction costs.  The District feels this alternative process is well suited to the new high school project.

The new 240,000 square foot building includes core learning environments, a science suite, athletic facilities, community spaces, (library, gym, commons, dining and performing arts center), administrative areas, special services and building support spaces.  Additionally, the project includes development of an all-weather turf athletic field.

The proposed site is located at 4200 - 228th Ave. SE, Issaquah, WA 98029 (former location of the Providence Heights College). The site is also planned to accommodate the new Elementary School #17.
