Stanwood High School was the capstone in a comprehensive redevelopment of the 62.2-acre campus. Included were a replacement high school, a replacement alternative high school, an addition and renovation of the District’s Maintenance and Technology Center, an expansion of the fieldhouse, renovation of the grandstand, and replacement of all the sports fields and parking.
The 241,000 SF, three-story building has a capacity for 1,600 students and 69 teaching stations. As the only high school in the District, the school includes facilities for the full breadth of a comprehensive high school, including general studies, science, fine and performing arts, music, athletics, and special education. The curriculum has a heavy focus on CTE programs with specialized spaces for a wide diversity of programs such as Veterinary Science, Horticulture, Culinary Arts, Cabinetry, Agricultural Mechanics, Photojournalism, Graphic Design, and Sports Medicine.
The new schools were constructed simultaneously on the same site as the existing schools in multiple phases of construction spanning three school years while the existing facilities remained in operation.
