Welcome new and returning Totems! Sammamish High School was built as the second high school in the Bellevue School District. We opened our doors in 1959 and graduated our first seniors in 1961.

Students, staff and parents enjoy exciting school spirit and academic traditions. Sammamish offers a balanced blend of academics, athletics and activities. Be sure to explore the many excellent opportunities at Sammamish.

Please review the information in this handbook to become familiar with Sammamish High School.

Best wishes for a great 2018-2019 school year!

SCHOLARSHIP is a constant desire to know more through collaborative and independent learning. It is a firm belief in the value of the life of the mind, assuming that there is always more for us to learn about the world around us.

HONOR is behaving in a way that positively affects your community, your school, and the relationships you have with others. It is a belief that we do right even when it is inconvenient to do so, knowing that our actions reflect the pride we feel in our community and ourselves.

SERVICE calls us to improve our community through our active citizenship in it. Accentuating our empathy and compassion, service can be contributing to a charitable cause, lending a hand in times of need, or inspiring schoolwide change.
