Currently, it has 15 elementary schools, five middle schools, an alternative high school and three comprehensive high schools.
It also provides the academic services for nearby Echo Glen Children’s Center, a treatment facility for younger male offenders and all sentenced youthful female offenders.
The Issaquah Schools Foundation is a private, non-profit 501 C (3) organization founded in 1987 to provide materials and program support to the district’s schools. The foundation works within the community to provide financial and other support to the District. Together, they drive resources to help all students achieve the promise of their academic potential. The annual operating budget now exceeds $1 million annually. This is an excellent display of the support the district has within its community.
The district operates under the direction of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). The current OSPI report card for the district can viewed online.
