We are pleased to report that progress is being made on the construction of the new Hunt Middle School.
We have entered into the environmental review portion of the process and have issued a Mitigated Determination of Non-Significance for this project, which means that this proposal will not have significant adverse impact on the environment.
The State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) process is a state requirement intended to ensure state and local agencies consider the likely environmental consequences of a proposed project before the project begins. The City of Tacoma also requires submittal of SEPA materials as part of the building and site development permit review.
These documents are available for public and agency review:

The Tacoma School Board selected the team of Absher Construction and BCRA Design to design and build the new Hunt Middle School.
Absher led the now-completed Wilson High School modernization, and BCRA is designing the new Boze Elementary School.
Hunt Middle School closed in 2010 and currently functions as one of two transition sites the school district uses to house students during other school construction projects. This year, students from Grant Center for the Expressive Arts attend school at the existing Hunt site while their new school is built.
Tacoma Public Schools conducted a middle school boundary study in 2016 to rebalance overcrowding at Mason and Truman and work in Wainwright Intermediate School when it opened, as well as the future boundary for Hunt.
Elementary Elementary schools that would feed into the Hunt boundary are all or some portions of Geiger, DeLong, Whittier, Franklin and Jefferson.
Middle All middle school students entering 8th grade when the new Hunt opens may remain in the same school with the same transportation options.
Incoming 7th graders who are impacted by the boundary change and would like to remain at their current middle school rather than transfer to Hunt may apply through the optional enrollment process and would have first priority in consideration. (In that case, transportation would be arranged by the family.)
Students who live in the Wainwright/Hunt boundary (Wainwright serves grades 4-8) can elect to go to Hunt if they want a more comprehensive middle school experience. Students who want to attend a different middle school altogether can apply through the optional enrollment process.

Originally constructed in 1958 as "one of the most imaginative in the nation," Hunt Middle School was closed in 2010 and currently functions as one of two transition sites the district uses during school construction projects. The district currently intends to open the new Hunt as a comprehensive middle school for West End and Fircrest families in fall 2021.
