WCSD8 has experienced rapid growth over the past 10 years. In 2009-2010, WCSD8 had 161 students K-8, in 2019-20, 750 students K-8 and the likely projection for 2025-24 is 1600 students K-12. Current "permanent" facilities on the three campuses are designed to hold approximately 650 students. Garden Valley and Round Prairie have inadequate kitchen and no gymnasium facilities. The information on this page contains information related to enrollment, current and potential facilities. It takes approximately 2 years to design, build and furnish a school. If you have questions, please contact the WCSD8 office.
On February 25, 2020, WCSD8 voters will be deciding on a $28 million bond which would enable a 600 student elementary to be built. Below is an outside rendering and floor plan.
