From 2009 to 2012, the school underwent demolition and reconstruction for a new school building, to which a new addition includes a theater. The school theater, gym, and fields are used in the evenings and on weekends for special events. Leota Middle School and Timbercrest Middle School feed into Woodinville High School.
