Webster School

Recent Updates

3015 NW 68th St., Seattle, WA 98117


Constructed in 1908, Webster School served as an elementary school through 1979. Construction of an addition in 1930 added an auditorium, library, industrial arts room, and play courts. The Nordic Heritage Museum leased the building in 1980 and remodeled many rooms to house exhibits. The museum will move to a new facility in 2018. This project will modernize the landmarked building to bring it back into service for district use as an elementary school.


$26.7 million

Project Description

As part of the modernization, the district will make earthquake safety improvements, replace and update existing building systems, and construct a new gymnasium. New technology systems will be added to meet district technical standards.

In 1997, Seattle Parks and Recreation opened Webster Park on the western portion of the Webster School site, and in 2009, SPS sold that portion of the property to Parks and Recreation. A Joint Use Agreement is in place, and the district plans to work with Parks to schedule use of the park during the school day to support recess and physical education programs.
