About BHS


Bothell High School is located in Bothell, Washington, in suburban Seattle. It is a comprehensive high school of more than 1,800 students (and growing) in grades nine through 12. 

BHS houses a diverse population of learners and departments students can take advantage of. Our robust academic curriculum consists of programs ranging from Advanced Placement to Careers in Technical Education to Special Education. Many of our students are concurrently enrolled in dual credit options like CTE, Running Start, and College in the High School which can provide college credit along with high school credit. Other students benefit from the vocational training available in a variety of satellite programs offered through WaNIC (a cooperative of seven local school districts), and through Lake Washington Technical College. Students come from other high schools and even other districts to participate in our unique Auto Shop and Culinary Arts classes. Additionally, we boast thriving drama and music programs that perform throughout the year at Northshore Performing Arts Center located on our campus.  

Many teachers serve as student advisors to Bothell High School's myriad clubs and organizations, some of which compete at a national level. Our schedule includes weekly time for students to participate in clubs appealing to their wider interests or hobbies, whether Science Olympiad, DECA, FBLA, ASB, or world languages, pop music, or social awareness issues.

About 40% of our student body participates in athletics with 18 girls teams and 16 boys teams competing throughout fall, winter, and spring. Field teams play at Pop Keeney Stadium, which we share with the three other district high schools. “The Pop” holds nearly 4,500 fans with covered bleacher seating for both the home and visiting teams and their fans. The summer of 2021 brought an exciting update to our softball field as we replaced the natural grass with turf, rounding out the turf installation on all our state-of-the-art practice and game facilities.

We are happy to welcome you to our Cougar community.
