Our family will soon be moving to the area and will be living on 35th Ave SW, (the boundary line for Roxhill schools and Arbor Heights schools). Does living on the boundary line mean we will be able to choose which school our children will attend? Also, which is better, Arbor Heights Elementary or Roxhill? Thanks!!!
“Better” is subjective and I’m sure somebody tomorrow will offer an opinion. Re: boundary lines – wherever you are in Seattle, every specific address has a specific school assignment. You can certainly apply to a different school but there’s no guarantee you’ll get in. Right now, though, I don’t believe either AH or Roxhill is overenrolled, unlike some of the other elementaries in WS. Welcome (in advance) to West Seattle! – Tracy
I can’t say which school is better because everybody has different opinions. One isn’t better than the other, it’s just someone’s opinion. The boundary line between Roxhill and AH isn’t 35th, it is 30th I believe so it sounds like your kids would go to AH. Here is a map.
