The current Tahoma High School has been in the Covington area since the 1970′s when it was built on 240th street.  Before that it was housed in the current Tahoma Middle School and before that in the building which now houses technology, maintenance and the Maple Valley Historical Society.  Now work is underway as the new high school is being designed to be built near Four Corners in Maple Valley. The history of the Tahoma School District which is mainly in Maple Valley is intriguing.  It goes back over 100 years as the school district for this area.  Here’s a link that will give you more information on the previous history behind the Tahoma School District.

I've lived in Covington for over 50 years. I've seen a lot of changes in Covington during that time and hope to share a few of these periodically. I enjoy writing and also write a blog for those in the custodial field. (The link is included on this blog page.) You can also find information on Facebook under the name Custodial Soupçon.
