Snohomish High School is a secondary school located in the Snohomish School District, in Snohomish, Washington, United States. SHS, built for 1200 students, contains 1797 9th–12th graders (as of 2009–10).[1] The school serves primarily those students living north of the Snohomish River. Glacier Peak High School, which opened September 4, 2008, serves primarily those students living south of the Snohomish River.

History

Before SHS actually opened it was first a courthouse with a small jail section underneath. SHS first opened in 1894 at the completion of the original 'A building'. The school underwent many remodels through the 1980s, including changes to the 'B building'. These changes removed the last vestiges of 'old' Snohomish High School — making the building completely modern. Among the changes made to the B building were the removal of its decades old fixed wooden bleachers and over-painting of many student-painted murals from the 1960s and earlier. There were also additions of music, science, and vocational buildings during this time. In an attempt to curb overcrowding, the 'C building' was constructed and opened in 1999, adding ten more classrooms to the school. As the school became more crowded, a grant was given to the school to remodel the campus, tearing down the B building was a major change. Parts of B building have been incorporated into the schools newer buildings.

General information

The school is currently Script error: No such module "convert". in area, plus Script error: No such module "convert". per additional portable classroom. During the 2012-2013 school year, 1825 students were enrolled at SHS. The school has a total of 90 classrooms.

Serpentine

The Serpentine Parade is a Homecoming tradition that has been held in Snohomish for 50 years.[2] The annual event draws crowds from the city, as every Snohomish High School student in their school colors marches from Avenue D to the Snohomish Aquatic Center (formerly known as Snohomish Junior High or the "Freshmen Campus"), past Central Elementary, down to First Street, and back to SHS on Avenue E. The parade is held the Friday afternoon of homecoming each year.

Campus

Snohomish Senior High School consists of a complex of buildings in an open campus layout. At the South end of the campus are the A and B buildings. A and B building used to be connected via an overpass, but the overpass was removed during the summer of 2009 during the A building renovation. North of the B building was the Performing Arts building, or PAC, but it was demolished. A new Performing Arts building is currently under construction on the same section of campus the old PAC stood on. North of the A building is the Cafeteria and New Gym. Attached to the west side of the New Gym is the new Auxiliary Gym. North of that, near the teacher parking lot, is the C building, which is scheduled for demolition in the renovation of the school in 2010. Just West of the New Gym is the brand-new "D" building which houses many classes ranging from art to science to math to auto mechanics. Originally West of the C building and North of the Music building was the V building, where the vocational and art classes met, but it was demolished in the summer of 2008 to make room for D building and additional staff parking. The interior of A building was torn out and renovated during the summer of 2009, and is now complete with the Main and Counseling offices (originally situated in A building before the renovation) moved into B building.

New tennis courts and south end faculty parking now run parallel to each other on 5th Street.
