Westside School (Seattle, WA)

Westside School. Critical Thinking. Communication. Collaboration. Creativity. Character.

Westside School was founded in 1981 and has grown from 11 to 300+ students in grades prekindergarten through 8th grade.

With roots that started in West Seattle’s co-op community, Westside School offers a progressive, integrated, project based curriculum. Westside values small class size, collaboration, empathy, and is an inclusive, multi-age community where older students mentor younger students and each other. The walls of the building contain but don’t limit the program – teachers are empowered to take advantage of learning opportunities as they arise.

The parent community is integral to the success of Westside School – they share responsibility for making Westside the rich, special community that it is.
