In this school, he has gained his happiness, confidence, and ability to self-regulate through POSITIVE reinforcement from teachers and peers. The teachers here understand a variety of student disabilities, and base student progress on their own individual growth rather than in comparison to other students in their class. There is no bullying, and the older kids really set a great example of how to treat the younger kids. My son was so unhappy and bullied by students in his previous school. He came home angry and frustrated every day. His teachers relegated him to the back corner of the classroom for 2/3rds of the day there. Academically, we spent so much time after school doing homework yet he still failed his 4th grade Science MSP. This last year at EH he got 4s (A's) in ALL areas tested on MSP! This school offers a variety of classes incl. robotics, legos, computer, diverse music (theater), martial arts, dance, etc. to keep students engaged and motivated to do well in the more traditional subjects. Highly recommend this school for involved and dedicated parents who want happy successful kids who don't (or do) fit into a regular school.

Edmonds Heights (Homeschool, Alternative School, Cyber School) has been a wonderful experience for our family! It has changed our lives. Learning can be self-directed (or not!) There are fantastic resources from Theater to Mathematics, Music to Latin. Students can move at their own pace and are able to choose and focus on areas of interest. Excellent staff assist in everything from academics to budgeting of time, money and resources. Here, the sky is the limit and kids enjoy learning, living and interacting with people of all ages. Family is emphasized, as are creativity and independence! Hands on & visual learning are always options. It's the best educational set up I've seen in my 25 years as a certified teacher both in the public and private sector. Our children are thriving here!

This is an exceptional alternative to traditional schooling. It offers a wonderful mix of classes. I just can't say enough about the classes and the instructors. It also frees our schedule to travel and do many of our basics in a shorter period of time. For those looking for an alternative, this is something to look at it.

About this school

Edmonds Heights K-12 We serve families who choose to be primary educators by partnering with them in their students’ education. In study after study, researchers discover how important it is for parents to be actively involved in their child's education. – National Education Association People should be free to find or make for themselves the kinds of educational experience they want their children to have. - John Holt, homeschool advocate My grandmother wanted me to have an education, so she kept me out of school. – Margaret Mead, anthropologist We partner with families to: Help students succeed - We believe that parent leadership is vital to students’ success. Our parents plan, coordinate, deliver, delegate and evaluate their students’ learning. Edmonds Heights K-12 teachers and staff play a vital role of support and guidance while respecting the parents’ values and priorities. In our program, families own the education process. Set individualized learning goals - Every student is unique and deserves a personalized approach to education. Our parents and students create customized Written Student Learning Plans (WSLPs) that focus on each student’s passions and interests. Our certificated teachers and experienced support staff work one-on-one with families to support these plans and help students achieve their goals. Encourage excellence - By offering a variety of learning environments, we empower students to follow their passions and choose the learning experiences that work best for them. Options include traditional classrooms, workshops led by independent professionals, integrated subjects, technology-rich opportunities, onsite library, school clubs, excursions and trips, competitions and participation in national clubs and programs. Families are actively involved in planning these offerings; parents and students decide what resources they will use. Empower parents and students as teachers and leaders - All members of our community are encouraged to share their ideas and passions for learning. Informal social connections and relationships with other families provide important sources of companionship, support and inspiration. Co-ops, workshops, culminating projects, and special events are just some of the ways that individuals can more formally bring their gifts and experiences to the community. Our Associated Student Body and Leadership Council provide opportunities for student and parent leadership. Anyone with a new idea is encouraged to speak up! Connect to outside resources and real-world experiences - We believe that learning extends outside the classroom walls. Our students have opportunities such as learning to bowl at a neighborhood bowling alley, showing work at the Edmonds Arts Festival, sailing a historic schooner around Puget Sound, attending community college and earning college credits through Running Start. Celebrate our students’ successes - Our community takes great pride in our students’ achievements and we honor their work on our website and at a variety of events, such as our performing arts events, martial arts belt ceremonies, music and dance recitals, classroom presentations and celebrations, academic awards, Student Showcase, Field Day and year-end Commencement Ceremony. Explore post-graduation opportunities - Ultimately, our goal is to launch our students into lives of passion and opportunity. Our alumni include a fire fighter, professional dancer, computer analyst, nurse, pilot, minister, teacher and a circus performer. Some pursue further education through the military, apprenticeships, internships, trade programs, respected colleges and world-class universities. Many choose to travel, taking advantage of international student programs and cultural exchanges. Edmonds Heights K-12 community members provide a rich network of contacts and resources for helping students find inspiring opportunities. WSLP advisors offer ideas and guidance in their fields of expertise; our on-site counselor helps students assess their interests and aptitudes and connects them to career fairs, college information, vocational opportunities and other district resources.
