We moved from Renton to Redmond in order to participate in the superior quality schools in Lake Washington School District Alcott surpasses all expectations. Thank you :)
Wonderful school. Incredible teachers, wonderful parents and parental involvement. Great curriculum. Academically minded parents and great cultural diversity.
Wonderful place to learn and thrive! Great environment. the staff, teachers and the leadership of the Principal make the difference! Lots of After school activities, outstanding PTSA effort. The gifted program QUEST is an excellent/challenging program!
Great school! Wonderful programs to encourage learning. I am shocked at how well my child is learning in this wonderful environment.
Wonderful, loving staff! We have four children, and have been in four different school systems, with two of the children having special needs. Thanks to all the phenomenal resource staff and the teachers here, who have amazing talent!
Don't be fooled by the assurances at Kindergarten Orientation: there are significant differences between the curriculms of the half day and all day kindergarten. The half-day kids miss out on reading incentive programs and additional academics, not just nap time, lunch, gym and extra recess, as we were told at orientation. My son is VERY bright but we still have to spend about 2 hours a day (sometimes MUCH more) covering what he's missing academically from being in the half-day program. Unfortunately, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! That should not be the case in a public school, but it is.
I am concerned about all-day kindergarten classes for a fee are being offered in public school where paying students are getting a better education than those who cannot pay.
