Boundary lines defining SHS and GPHS attendance areas were established in the 2005-2006 school year.  Those students who are south and west of the Snohomish River and attend or attended Valley View Middle School will automatically be enrolled at Glacier Peak.   The exceptions will be those students who went to Central/Emerson. The Central/Emerson students should have already received a letter from the District giving them the opportunity to choose which school they wish to attend.


Students who are currently not enrolled in the Snohomish School District, reside in the GPHS enrollment area and would like to attend GPHS.
Students who live within the GPHS boundaries and wish to attend GPHS but are currently attending a school outside the Snohomish School District will need to fill out a registration packet which can be obtained from Snohomish High School, the Freshman Campus or the District Office.  After completing the packet, please contact the GPHS registrar, Cheryl Mendenhall, at 360-563-4308 or at to arrange an appointment with a counselor.

Students who are currently not enrolled in the Snohomish School District, reside outside the GPHS enrollment area but would like to attend GPHS:
Students who do not reside within the boundaries of the Snohomish School District must visit their own school district offices and complete an Application for Attendance In A Non-Resident District and have that district sign it off before we (SSD) can entertain registering that student in our schools. Our variance applications are available at the District Resource Service Center.  Students whose variances were approved before March 1, 2008 will be able to register for classes at GPHS in the spring of 2008. Students who apply for variances after March 1, 2008 will have to wait until mid June 2008 to know if their variance has been approved.

Students who are currently enrolled in one of the high schools and wish to transfer to the other.
Enrollment in either SHS or GPHS is based on attendance area and is considered a permanent assignment.   Changes will not be made (as per School District policy) without applying for an attendance variance.   Please click here for complete information on this process.


Dear Friend of Glacier Peak High School,
Welcome to our new high school. As the first day of school approaches I get more excited to see students walking the halls of this wonderful facility. Enclosed in this packet is some very important information. Please read all of it to help you understand what your part is in the first days of school. Teachers and staff have worked very hard this summer to plan for an education that will meet our mission of Preparing Students to Lead Extraordinary Lives. What we will do this year and every year at GPHS is to take each students skills and talents and develop them to an extraordinary level.

This commitment to build extraordinary people we do not take lightly. With great facilities, committed teachers and outstanding technology you will see an excellent education for all students. I would like to thank each of you for showing the commitment to support the creation of this school by enrolling your student at Glacier Peak High School. Even more I would like to thank you as a voter for choosing to financially support building our high school. Our promise is to fulfill your trust in us by giving the students of Glacier Peak High School an outstanding education.
