Stahl Junior High Addition

Building History

Stahl Junior High School opened in 1993 and is located on South Hill, west of Meridian Street South and just south of 168th Street East. The project architect was Erickson McGovern Peterson Storaasli of Tacoma, Washington, and the general contractor was L P & H Construction Company of Longview, Washington. Stahl Junior High School was a state matched project with local funding coming from the 1991 Bond Issue.

The school was named in honor of Mrs. Doris M. Stahl. Doris began her teaching career in 1939 in the Montesano School District. She moved to the Puyallup School District in 1942 and taught junior high spelling and penmanship.

After spending six years in Arizona, Mrs. Stahl returned to the Puyallup School District in 1953 and taught English at Puyallup High School. At the time of her retirement, in 1981, Doris had taught for 33 years in the Puyallup School District, 31 at the junior high level.

The school was named in recognition of a teacher who represented excellence in the teaching profession and in the Puyallup School District. She was the consummate junior high teacher and was loved, respected, and appreciated by all that knew her. Doris Stahl passed away on January 20, 1983.

The original building has a total of 30 classroom spaces, two (2) gymnasiums, four (4) 
special education rooms and several smaller specialty instructional spaces. It will be eligible for state matching funds for modernization or new construction in lieu of modernization in the year 2023.

In September 2021, a building addition was completed with funding from state match 
generated from the 2015 Bond. The project included a 16,000 sq. ft. building addition, including six general education classrooms, two (2) science and two (2) special ed classrooms, support spaces, and enhanced courtyard. The project also included renovation of approx. 9,000 sq. ft. of the existing CTE and performing arts areas and approx. 2,500 sq. ft. addition to custodial/receiving and Commons, removal of thirteen (13) portables, mechanical upgrades, and a secure vestibule at the building entry.
