Hamlin Robinson Middle School has completed work on a new school building at 1701 20th Ave S. in Seattle’s Rainier Valley neighborhood.

The new four-story, 56,377-square-foot school building is a steel structure with concrete on metal deck floors. The exterior skin is made of metal and composite siding. It features 17 classrooms, 15 offices and 14 restrooms.

Hamlin Robinson is an independent school offering a specialized program specifically for students with dyslexia and related language difficulties. The existing school building, which once housed both the elementary school and the middle school, can now be used exclusively for elementary. This will also provide more space for its public tutoring services and professional development training of educators.
