When Mount Si High School Principal John Belcher spoke at the Class of 2015 Graduation ceremony last June, he said he felt very connected that class because they both started as freshman together – back in the fall of 2011 when he took over the reigns as principal.

Belcher said he challenged the class of 2015 with a goal – to have each and every one of them graduate on-time and together in the Mount Si stadium. If that lofty goal was achieved, it would mark a 14% increase over the [MSHS] Class of 2012 and be well-above the state average of 77%.

The Cascade Team 3D Walkthrough Showcase is an online experience that lets home buyers move through a property and see it from any angle. Even get a completely unique sense for the place with our “dollhouse” view.

Snoqualmie Valley School Board President Geoff Doy described the designs for the future, re-built Mount Si High School as “a school to be proud of,” saying the schematic plans brought tears to his eyes.

Raised above flood levels; constructed of low-maintenance, durable materials; secure with fewer points of entry; open spaces with stunning views of Mount Si and Rattlesnake Ridge; innovative outdoor roof areas; street level/under building parking; a compact, streamlined design influenced by the needs of students, teachers and administrators; a connected yet separate freshman campus. It seems nothing was missed while designing the future Mount Si High School.
