Achievement Award Recipient, Second Year in a Row!
South Lake is the Washington Achievement Award recipient for the second consecutive year. This recognition by the State is truly an honor and is one we are striving for each year. One of our notable accomplishments is with each year, more and more seniors are graduating: last school year we had 38 students walk across the graduation stage. The year is off to a fantastic start! We are confident that we will continue to support our students toward graduation.
New Assistant Principal
We would like to take a moment to welcome our new assistant principal, Makela Steward. Ms. Steward has local roots here in South Seattle: She is a graduate of Rainier Beach High School and has spent over a decade teaching for Seattle Public Schools. She comes to us with a plethora of ideas, a passion for collaboration, and strong ties to the community. Welcome, Ms. Steward! South Lake is excited for your leadership in the 2013-2014 school year.
