    The P-5 Campus will house Stevens Creek Elementary School, named for a nearby creek that takes water from the site and eventually flows into Lake Stevens, and the Early Learning Center. The schools are being constructed on 38 acres of land adjacent to Lake Drive and Soper Hill Road. This property was initially purchased to build a middle school, and is large enough to accommodate one in the future.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    When will the new schools open?
    The Early Learning Center welcomed students in January 2018. Stevens Creek Elementary School will open at the start of the 2018-19 school year.

    Which students will attend the new school?
    The new boundaries will go into effect at the start of the 2018-19 school year.

    Why are you building schools under power lines?
    The P-5 Campus is located off of Lake Drive—not under the power lines on the east side of Highway 9. The construction projects off of Highways 9 and 92 are not Lake Stevens School District projects.

    Who does the Early Learning Center serve?
    Our Early Learning Center (ELC) houses our Early Childhood Education and Assistance Program and our Developmental Preschool Program.

    ECEAP is a comprehensive preschool program, funded by the State of Washington, that provides education, family support and parental involvement and child health and nutrition services for students and their families. ECEAP serves three- and four-year-olds from low income families, or with developmental or environmental risk factors that could interfere with school success. Research shows that programs like ECEAP save states and communities money by reducing the need for remedial services in schools, social services and criminal justice. With a larger space, we would be able to accommodate additional qualified families.

    Our developmental preschool program supports developmentally disabled students. These students benefit from instruction by certified special education teachers, speech therapists, occupational and physical therapists and audiologists. There are no income requirements to attend the developmental preschool program, and students are served based on a ChildFind evaluation.
