Bellevue School District’s newest elementary school broke ground last week on July 19. The school will support about 650 future students from the downtown Bellevue and Wilburton neighborhoods, which will help overcrowding at Enatai, Woodrige and Clyde Hill elementary schools.
The name of the new school will be Wilburton Elementary. The school will open fall 2018 at the corner of Main Street and 124th Ave NE.
Wilburton marks the first new elementary school that’s been built since 1972 when Somerset Elementary was built.

Oh my – having grown up in Bellevue from 8th grade on I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. I graduated from Bellevue High in 1962 and we’re celebrating our 55th year class reuion on Saturday, August 12th. It’s hard to believe our own children all graduated there as well! I have to forward this to my brother, Dick Bryant. He’s an architect in Oregon and class of 1965. My husband and I now live on Bainbridge Island and I retired after teaching in the Lake Washington School District after 47 years in June of 2013.
