By Lindsay Peyton

Construction is wrapping up at two new elementary schools in West Seattle – just in time for the first day of school on Wednesday, Sept. 7.

Arbor Heights Elementary, located at 3701 SW 104th St, will offer the community a sneak peak of the campus during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will also be held at Genesee Hill Elementary School, located at 5013 SW Dakota St, at 1 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6.

Both campuses were constructed with funding from the Building Excellence IV Capital Levy, approved by voters in 2013 – and each will offer students state-of-the art learning environments.

Arbor Heights School, a 90,000 sq. ft. elementary, will accommodate 660 students, doubling the capacity of the 1940s-era building it replaced. The budget for the school was $40.9 million.

The campus was built around the concept of a pioneering Environmental Science Technology Engineering (E-STEM) program.
