Construction crews have begun tearing down portions of Juanita High School (JHS) in Kirkland as part of the Lake Washington School District’s plans to rebuild and enlarge the school.

Completed in 1971, JHS is the oldest comprehensive high school in the district. As previously reported, the project will be built in three phases to minimize the school’s use of portable classrooms and enable some areas such as the cafeteria and library to move directly to the new building. The phasing also means the school will be completed in summer 2020, one year earlier than originally planned.
