Scriber Lake High School (SLHS), located in the city of Edmonds, Washington, is one of five high schools within the Edmonds School District. It is the only alternative high school within the district.

At the end of the 2006-2007 school year the school campus was closed and everything was moved to the former Woodway Elementary campus. The Edmonds School District plans to demolish the old buildings at the Scriber Lake site and build a new district headquarters there, and remodel the former district headquarters for use as the new permanent site for the alternative high school (yet to be named). District estimates place the date for this final step in 2010.

At around 1:00 AM on Friday July 1, 2007 neighbors to Scriber Lake's former campus called 911 to report hearing sounds of breaking glass coming from the school. Emergency crews arrived on the scene to find the "F" Building (which housed the technology/woodshop and art classrooms) engulfed in flames. Officials have termed the cause of the fire to be "suspicious" and are investigating whether or not it is related to a burglary committed just prior. Police estimate that burglars made off with around $5000 in copper wiring and another $1000 in tools.(1)The building sustained approximately $20,000 in fire damages and though the school was prepped and slated for demolition later that summer the newer "F" Building was intended to be used as a staging area for deconstruction and remodeling crews.
