 About the Project

Magnolia School was originally constructed in 1927 and subsequently expanded in 1931, 1941, and 1969. The building and site have been designated as a historical landmark by the City of Seattle’s Landmarks Preservation Board. The school was closed in 1984 and used as a temporary site from 1987–2004. In 2019, the modernized existing school opened with new classroom and gymnasium wings. 

A second classroom addition will be added to the newly opened attendance area elementary. It will allow the district to implement state mandated class-size reductions. This funding for this addition was received after construction began on the original project.

Design Firm: Mahlum Architects

Construction Firm: CDK Construction Services, Inc.

Funding Source: Funded by a State of Washington Distressed Schools grant
