If Sammamish has its quirks, they're quirks worth learning about. Near Seattle but secluded on the eastern shore of Lake Sammamish, this town allows residents to reap the rewards of both rural and suburban lifestyles. Though it lacks a post office, Sammamish boasts a symphony orchestra and great schools in two districts, Lake Washington County School District (northern Sammamish) and Issaquah School District (southern Sammamish).
Sammamish-area schools are bursting with innovative programs. Last November, for example, the Green Team at Issaquah Middle School joined with MIT to investigate how garbage moves through cities. Lake Washington also runs 11 incredibly popular "choice schools" like the 90-student Renaissance School of Art and Reasoning, which focuses on the visual and performing arts.
