Glacier Peak High School is a high school at the south end of the Snohomish School District, established in 2008. The high school's colors are navy blue, silver and white, and the mascot is the grizzly bear. Glacier Peak was built to relieve overcrowding at Snohomish High School and is a 230,000-square-foot (21,000 m2) facility designed by NAC Architecture and built by Lydig Construction.

The school opened in an almost completed state on September 3, 2008 for grades 9-11.[1] It was completely finished by January 2009. Grades 9-12 have attended GPHS since September 2009, and the first senior class graduated June 17, 2010.

GPHS has a large arts department; students can choose from performing and fine arts classes. A performing arts center provides a venue for GPHS's performances, including plays and musicals as well as jazz band, concert band, and choir concerts.
