High School Options for 8th grade students

High School Options for 8th grade students

Posted on 10/13/2020


Eight grade students have a transition into high school that is coming up quickly. We want to make sure all families are aware of the options available to students as they head into high school next school year. 

Neighborhood High Schools

All comprehensive neighborhood high schools have feeder patterns which are decided by a students’ home addresses. Each of these high schools, Edmonds-Woodway, Lynnwood, Meadowdale and  Mountlake Terrace offer Career and Technical Education courses, College in High School (CIHS), Advanced Placement (AP) and during junior and senior year the option of Running Start. They also provide transportation and a wide variety of clubs, activities and athletics.  


As alternatives, there are a few schools and programs that are available to Edmonds School District students as high school options. Please read through each description below and websites linked and consider attending any upcoming informational events.

STEM Magnet Program at Mountlake Terrace High

The Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Magnet Program at Mountlake Terrace High School provides a four-year program of study which deeply engages students in the STEM disciplines while allowing for a range of student elective choices including Advanced Placement, College in High School, music, and other classes based on student interests.

Scriber Lake High School

Scriber Lake High School is a school of choice and a small alternative learning high school with approximately 250 students. Students who attend Scriber Lake are expected to meet all district and state standards and they graduate with an Edmonds School District diploma. Many students are more successful with experiential learning and classes are offered to meet these needs. Students are also more successful due to small class sizes, more one-on-one attention, and careful monitoring of progress.
