Building History

Edgemont Junior HIgh School
2300 110th Avenue East
Edgewood, WA 98372

The new Edgemont Junior High School, one of the 1997 Bond Program projects, opened in the fall of 2001 and replaced the original school at the same site. The Edgewood, Jovita and Mountain View school districts consolidated in 1936 creating the new Edgemont School District. Named for this "new" school district, the original Edgemont School was opened in 1938 on North Hill, east of Meridian Avenue North and just north of 24th Street East. In the beginning, the old school only had eight (8) classrooms and housed students in grades one through grade eight. Edgemont School changed to a junior high school in 1957 with the opening of Hilltop Elementary.

The permanent building has a total of 20 classroom spaces, one (1) gymnasium, one (I) practice gym, and several smaller specialty instructional spaces. In 2012, the building received a Building Assessment Score of 89, compared to a districtwide rating average of 76.4. It will be eligible for state matching funds for modernization or new construction in lieu of modernization in the year 2031.
