On the outskirts of Seattle, we invite you to view school through a new lens. We revitalized Bothell’s first junior high with pure fun in mind; for dining, moviegoing, live music, swimming, games, shopping, private events, meetings, tastings and all-around enjoyment for visitors of all ages.
No hall pass is needed to explore our multifaceted grounds. Have a handcrafted beverage in the hallway. Order drinks in the Principal’s Office, play pinball in The Woodshop, and forgo the lunch line for casual, sophisticated dining at The Tavern on the Square, surrounded by lush courtyard space in place of concrete. Escape the everyday at the North Shore Lagoon; swimming and South Seas rum drinks await. We invite you to explore the reimagined space around you—all 5.41 acres!
Throughout it all, note the one-of-a-kind artwork, which local artists created based on historical photos and interviews from alumni, families and colorful residents.
To create new memories in our space, we host special all-ages events, such as assorted holiday gatherings and live music.
Built in 1931 as the first junior high in Bothell, and later named after the school’s first Principal, Wilbert A. “Andy” Anderson, the art-deco style Anderson School and surrounding buildings are three blocks north of the intersection of Routes 527 and 522—approximately 13 miles north of Seattle, adjacent to the Pop Keeney Stadium.
McMenamins Anderson School welcomes one and all to explore our reimagined school, in session daily.
