Seattle opening 4 'new' schools this fall, and you can go check them out


Four "new" schools are opening this fall in the Seattle School District, and the public is invited to check them out before students report for class.

We saw "new" because all of these buildings already existed and have been schools — either recently or a bit further back in the past.

Here are the four buildings, a brief summary of what's been done to them, and the chance to go and take a look.

UPDATE, Sept. 2: Two events have already passed, but two remain!

Queen Anne Elementary School, 2100 Fourth Ave. N.: open house 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3: Students return from an interim school site to an addition including classroom spaces, a gymnasium and new administrative offices.

Lincoln High School, 4400 Interlake Ave. N.: open house 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 3: The landmarked brick building first opened in 1907 and was a high school until 1981. Since then it has housed Boys and Girls Club and numerous times been a temporary home for students in schools being renovated. It has been extensively renovated and modernized, but steps have been taken to preserve its history as well.

Last week's celebrations:

Magnolia Elementary School, 2418 28th Ave. W.: open house 10:30 a.m. Thursday (Aug. 29). This historic building was extensively remodeled and renovated to serve as a new, neighborhood elementary school.  The landmarked building, which dates to 1927, closed in 1984 but has fulfilled several temporary functions, housing students from schools being renovated and housing African American Academy from 1993-2000.

Ingraham High School, 1819 N. 135th St.: open house 2 p.m. Thursday (Aug. 29): Celebrating a newly constructed, two-story addition on the north side of the school with a new entry, classrooms, administration offices and student common spaces.
