About the district

See also: Lake Washington School District, Washington
Lake Washington School District is located in King County, Washington
Lake Washington School District is based out of Redmond and serves King County communities including Kirkland and Sammamish. The population of Redmond was 54,144 according to the 2010 U.S. Census.[5]


Redmond outperformed state averages for higher education achievement, median income and poverty. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (60.2%) surpassed the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Redmond's median income at $92,851 while the state median income was $58,890. Redmond had a poverty rate of 6.5% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%.[5]

Presidential Voting Pattern[6]
Year Democratic Vote (%) Republican Vote (%)
2012 68.7 28.3
2008 70.0 28.0
2004 65.0 33.7
2000 60.0 34.4

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7] This Ballotpedia page provides a more detailed explanation of how the Census Bureau handles race and ethnicity in its surveys.
