The new Shorecrest High School building opened for students and staff on Monday, February 24 following mid-winter break. The new main academic building was constructed behind the old school, which dates back to 1961. The old building will now be demolished to make room for parking areas. The new Shorecrest gymnasium and performing arts buildings opened in earlier phases.

The Shoreline School District is completing two major high school projects this year, using proceeds from the sale of bonds approved by voters in 2010 and state matching funds. The new Shorewood High School opened last September. On Monday, 1,300 Shorecrest students and staff began their day at 7:50am with an assembly in the gym, then walked in a procession led by the Shorecrest Scots bagpipers across the courtyard into the new building to get their first look at their new classrooms.
