Renton School District

New Elementary School in Highlands area

We've begun work to build our newest elementary school in the Renton Highlands area. Renton School Board members were joined recently by Renton City Council members and Cornerstone General Contractors to break ground for the new school located at 1075 Duvall Ave., Renton (across Duvall Ave. from Hazen High School).

The project is made possible thanks to overwhelming voter support in the Nov. 2019 School Construction bond measure.

Population growth in the area, and the many new construction projects planned over the next few years, has led to the need for additional classroom capacity for elementary school students. The school is planned to open in the fall of 2023.


We've selected Bryn Mawr Principal Jaime Maxie to serve as the planning principal of the new elementary school. Principal Maxie brings 23 years of experience in education to the position, most recently serving as principal at Bryn Mawr since 2014. Prior to that, she served as assistant principal at Dimmitt Middle School, an instructional coach at Nelsen Middle School and Lindbergh High School. She began her teaching career at Dimmitt Middle School as a special education teacher and 6th grade teacher.
