The county’s newest high school has a name.

The Snohomish School District decided this week that the school will be named Glacier Peak High School.

The $88.3 million campus at 7401 144th Place SE in Snohomish is set to open in 2008.

The name was one of three recommended by a selection committee of students, community members, parents and Snohomish School District employees.

The committee reviewed 492 names before selecting the winner.

Committee members said the name met the criteria set by the School Board because it reflects a significant geographical characteristic of the school site in that Glacier Peak is visible from campus.

Glacier Peak, Snohomish County’s active volcano, can only be seen from a few places in our area.

The other two names recommended by the committee were Eagle Ridge High School and Three Rivers High School.
