St. Matthew s is a place that when I drop off my children every day, I know they will be safe, they will thrive and they will be treated with kindness and respect. This is a community where everyone looks after each other, parents and teachers support one another and we genuinely want to see each child succeed to their full potential. If you are looking for a place where you and your child will feel like you belong to a loving and accepting community, this is the place! Our school might be humble on the outside but we are rich on the inside! The halls are filled with diversity, teaching the children to see God in everyone. Tour our halls during school hours and you will witness for yourself this wonderful place that has been the best kept secret in Seattle!
Not only does St. Matthew strive for academic excellence for each student and offers support when needed for each child, but also focusses on the Christian-Catholic principles through thier P.R.I.S.M. program: pride in work, respect for others, inclusion of everyone, safety and manners. What is especially wonderful is thier diverse community. Growing up an minority, this was an particular area where I wanted my children to feel comfortable and included. Seeing that my daughter is thriving and LOVES school and everyone in it, I know that we made the right choice of schools.
St. Matthew School is a wonderful community of students, teachers, and parents. The students support each other from 8th grade down to Kindergarten. The relationships between the grade level teaches the students compassion, empathy, and kindness. The teachers challenge the students to strive for their best and even beyond.
