About SES

Snoqualmie Elementary

Snoqualmie Elementary School (SES) serves students in preschool through fifth grade. A new gymnasium was built in 2018, and the school’s courtyard garden provides outdoor learning. As part of our district’s technology initiative, classrooms are equipped with engaging instructional technology such as interactive white boards, web-based tools, and sets of mobile devices; and coding instruction has been expanded to grades K-5 at all SVSD elementary schools. The STREAM program (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering and Math) is a magnet program, based at SES, for students throughout the district in grades 2-5 who qualify for gifted services.
