Few places in this world are more special than Enumclaw High School. Not only do we have the distinct honor and privilege of helping 1400 incredible young people strive towards growth and excellence in our care, but we are able to do so with 120 outstanding and dedicated staff members who value community, building relationships and academic excellence. Each world-class team of teachers, paraprofessionals, secretaries, custodians and administrators has a clear unified focus on dedicating themselves to the success of each and every student. Teams of Enumclaw High School staff members work tirelessly in a collaborative, supportive and flexible environment to continuously focus our efforts on positive student growth to ensure that each student has a future of their choosing.

This isn’t to say that there is not a vital place for our parents and community members to influence the educational pathway of their son, daughter, grandson, granddaughter and/or neighbor at Enumclaw High School. Rather, we believe that you are our best and most vital partner as we rely on your intimate and life-long experience to team with us to educate and prepare our community’s youth for the challenges and excitement of today’s world and that of the future as well. As partners in education with you, we believe it is our calling to maximize the potential of each Enumclaw High School student and provide the level of support, kindness and love that will help them to thrive and grow. We hope you know and understand that our doors are open and we are ready to develop and/or nurture our educational alliance moving forward.

Perhaps it is in this spirit of partnership and alliance that our mascot, the hornet, symbolizes what a special place Enumclaw High School is for our community of learners. Like hornets, our strength stems from our work together and we thrive when we work collaboratively as a community. Our mascot is more than a symbol of how proud we are of our school - rather it is a symbol of our teamwork, collaboration and belief that we achieve more together than when alone. As the physical plant of Enumclaw High School undergoes its metamorphosis through our major remodel, it slowly reveals the greatness that we impart to our students each and every day. Those who have been at Enumclaw High School far longer than I will tell you that this has always been a special place for our students and will continue to be so for generations to come.

Please let us know how we can be of service to you and your family.

Yours in partnership,

Aaron Lee
