Video Tours of Einstein and Kellogg Middle Schools
While the pandemic has prevented public tours of the newly opened Einstein and Kellogg Middle Schools, district and school staff held a Community Connections Meeting in April focused on the design and construction of the schools and their construction process. It also featured video tours of both schools. The webinar recording along with standalone video tours of Einstein and Kellogg are available below.
Both schools were designed through a collaborative process with design teams that included school staff, students, families and architects. While each school had its own design team, they were both guided by an overarching set of guiding principles for what was important to have in their new schools. They included: active and dynamic learning environments, safety and security, equity, creating community, indoor and outdoor connections, a variety of spaces and being environmentally responsible campuses.
Both schools are just under 151,000 square feet with a capacity of 1,071 students each. Integrus Architects was the architect for the Einstein project and Mahlum Architects was the architect for the Kellogg project. Both schools were constructed by Hoffman Construction.
Construction of both middle schools was funded by a 2017 school bond approved by over 73 percent of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park voters. The bond also funded construction of the Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center and Parkwood Elementary.
