This campus expansion will build on the strengths of our educational program and allow for innovative growth across the three core programs of the school; the lower school, the middle school, and the Learning Center.
In May of 2018, the HRS Board of Trustees seized the opportunity to purchase a highly coveted property directly across the street from the school’s current campus, allowing the creation of a dual, integrated campus. Plans are underway to construct a new middle school on that property opening in fall of 2022.
The new facility will not only double HRS’ middle school student population, it will allow for increased enrollment in the lower school building and expand the HRS Learning Center beyond its facilities located on the original campus. The entire fourth floor of the new middle school will be devoted to Learning Center programs – including tutoring facilities and a conference center for large community events.
As we write the next chapter in our history and look to the future, we focus on what matters most – remaining true to our core mission. At the same time, we are resolved to provide resources to as many families as possible, to educate a diverse student body, and to inspire each student to achieve beyond their perceived potential, made possible by the dedicated service of highly qualified teachers and staff, and a strong educational leadership team.
response to a growing need
Hamlin Robinson School opened a specifically designed campus in 2015, with the goal to reach projected capacity within ten years. Our reputation of successful educational programs resulted in classrooms filled to capacity within five years.
Hamlin Robinson School is proud to be part of the Rainier Valley community. It is our goal to build relationships with community members to foster a positive environment and strong neighborhood connections.
The Elevating our Impact capital project for the construction of a new middle school building is a direct response to immediate and growing needs.
Alumna and Elevating Our Impact community alumni chair Hadyn Daugs looks back at her time at HRS fondly, recalling her favorite teachers, biggest motivations, and hopes for the future.
The new middle school will have a trickle-down effect, relieving pressure on all grades to accept more students.Jessica ruger, head of lower school
