The effort to build a new Issaquah Middle School campus is moving forward.
In a unanimous decision May 18, 2015, the Issaquah City Council approved the Issaquah School District’s master site plan and site development permit for the middle school.
The new campus will be built on the current site of Clark Elementary School along Second Avenue Southeast.
The new middle school will include one-, two- and three-story sections, and provide approximately 131,000 square feet of academic, athletic and performing arts space on 32 acres. The new middle school was designed to serve approximately 1,100 students and include 39 classrooms.
In addition, the project includes circulation improvements for the new middle school and the existing Issaquah High School.
The project will be completed in phases, in order to keep all students on site throughout the construction of the new campus.
The existing Clark Elementary and Tiger Mountain Community High schools will remain in operation during the construction, and then relocate to the existing Issaquah Middle School campus once that site is renovated.
