Our History

Edward Ingraham
Edward Sturgis Ingraham

Ingraham High School was established in 1959 in the north end of Seattle, Washington, locally known as the “Emerald City.” It was named after an early mountaineer and superintendent of Seattle Schools, Edward Sturgis Ingraham.

Ingraham chose its colors, blue, grey, and white from the blue of the sky, white of the snow, and grey of the mountains. The Ingraham Glacier on Mt. Rainier is another namesake of E.S. Ingraham. Therefore our school paper is called the Cascade and our annual is called the Glacier.

Ingraham is proud of its multiculturally diverse student body, its academic excellence, and its many innovative and exciting academics, and activity programs. Ingraham Rams currently number about 1,340 students.
