Please see the New Elementary School #16 web page. 

The Renton School District is in the process of designing a new elementary school (Elementary #16) for approximately 600 students in the Renton Highlands area.

The new elementary school will be constructed on approximately 11 acres of property along the west side of Duvall Ave NE, surrounded by 10th Street NE and 12th Street NE. The design phase has begun and a GC/CM contractor has been hired.
