Community

Location, Collaboration, Community …

Situated just over a half-mile from the Rainier Beach light rail station and across the street from a Metro bus stop, South Lake High School welcomes students from all over the city. We provide scholars with authentic learning opportunities, serving students from our own neighborhood and beyond. South Lake can connect you with exciting mentors and real-world experiences easily accessed by public transportation.  

The South Lake High School campus shares space with the South Shore K-8 School, Dunlap Elementary, and the Rainier Beach Community Center and Pool. Steps away from a Seattle Public Library branch, and mere blocks from several outdoor learning environments, our community of learning includes Pritchard Island Beach, Beer Shiva Park, the Rainier Beach Urban Farm and Wetlands. Social services, ethnic support agencies and a variety of local businesses provide amenities in our neighborhood – all of which serve to support our students’ learning.
