Lake Washington Girls Middle School

Lake Washington Girls Middle School empowers girls to be strong in mind, body, and voice.

LWGMS holds up the opportunity of a world in which girls are nurtured and empowered to reach their academic, social, and emotional potential. To that end, the school provides a supportive single-gender learning environment where students, teachers, staff, families, and our surrounding community are active partners in inspiring leadership, social responsibility, and self-confidence in girls.

Please join us for one of our Open Houses this fall. Attending an Open House is an excellent way to get to know L-Dub, its program, and its people. Meet with students, teachers, and administrators, and learn how our academic and co-curricular programs may be a good match for your family.

L-Dub is currently building a permanent home: a ground-up construction project built for L-Dub’s distinct teaching, learning, community, and social connections; a home that will reflect our values and propel our programs forward; a home that will secure the future of our school. We will move in 2019. Over the course of our school’s history, we have had three homes. Each shaped our culture of ingenuity and creativity, but we have longed for a place to establish deep roots. If we remain in our current leased location, necessary seismic and safety upgrades could cost our community up to $4 million ‒ a big investment for a space that’s not our own. Instead, we have an opportunity to control our own destiny: to build for and around our girls.
