Renton School District


Welcome Renton Community!

Renton School District is a high-performing public-school district serving students in preschool through grade 12. We provide a safe and challenging learning environment for a diverse population of nearly 15,500 students at 4 high schools, 4 middle schools, 16 elementary schools, and an early childhood learning center. District programs also address the special needs of students, academically advanced, and artistically talented students. Spanning more than 33 square miles, our district boundaries encompass seven different municipalities: Renton, Newcastle, Bellevue, Kent, Tukwila, South Seattle, and unincorporated King County.

Renton School District strives to make our students future ready: each student graduating with options and prepared to participate fully in our democracy. Through our Core Values of Service, Excellence and Equity, we work to consistently improve family and community engagement; excellence in learning and teaching; and removing barriers and supporting student success.

The City of Renton is a thriving community located in the heart of the Puget Sound region, just six miles from SeaTac International Airport, eight miles from Downtown Bellevue and 11 miles from Downtown Seattle. As a major employment center for the region, Renton hosts such major manufacturing companies as Boeing, PACCAR, Mitsubishi Aircraft and Alliance Packaging; finance and banking institutions such as the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco; healthcare sector leaders such as UW Medicine’s Valley Medical Center, Providence Health System, and Kaiser Permanente; regional shopping destinations such as IKEA, The Landing, and Fry’s Electronics; and, national headquarters of the world famous Wizards of the Coast entertainment company, the Seattle Seahawks (including its training facility) and the Seattle Sounders (the state's professional soccer club).

Community support for Renton schools is strong. School levies, which make up more than 20% of the district's budget, have been consistently approved by our voters for more than 30 years. Voter-approved bond measures or capital facilities levies from 1992 through 2019 have brought exciting improvements in school buildings and support facilities, including the rebuilding of all elementary schools, the remodeling of all middle and high schools, and the recent addition of a new elementary and middle school. Voter support has also provided state-of-the-art technology - a must to prepare students for living and working in this leading high-tech region. Every classroom has high-speed Internet connections and students at middle and high schools are issued a personal Chromebook laptop for use at school and home. In elementary schools, ample computer devices are provided for all students.
