My kids love their school and are sadden we are moving away and they will be attending a new school. I have had the priviledge of serving as a volunteer in the last few years and I know Alki Elementary is one of the best schools in the city without all the recognition it deserves. Teachers, staff, administrators and parents have worked together to make this a special place for children to learn and thrive. We will miss Alki Elementary dearly!
I think Alki is a perfect fit for both parents and students who want a place to feel like home. The entire school from teacher, support staff, students and families enjoy being together and sharing the same general goals for the school, a well-rounded education. Watching the students learn together and expand on their academic achievements is the best part of Alki. With a very active parent volunteer population we are able to support or school in many terrific ways. We have the beach and an old growth forest within walking distance of our school which allows our students a very unique learning environment.
I feel that Alki is a pretty good school. I believe that leadership is very important as we teach are children...Schools need to focus more on the kids, rather than the numbers. If they are able to do that, they will have better numbers and less unhappy parents, and more profitable schools As far as I am concerned, this school is handling these issues very well. I would recommend to anyone enrolling a student into this school and have complete communication with the teacher at all times.
