Glacier Grizzlies say a final goodbye to their former High School


Glacier alumni gathered in the gym once more to pick up pieces of the bleachers, take photographs, and reminisce.

Proving that our experiences in school impact us the rest of our lives, more than 200 Glacier Grizzlies recently gathered to say a fond farewell to the former Glacier High School in SeaTac.

They walked the halls, visited the spirit rock and gathered in the gym. The alumni left with shared memories and more than 700 pieces of the old bleachers for themselves and others who could not be there.

Glacier High School opened in 1960 and closed in 1980 when Sea-Tac Airport expanded and enrollment decreased.

Later this summer, the buildings will be demolished to make way for a new middle school opening in fall 2019. More information about the new middle school is here: highlineschools.org/KeepingOurPromise
