Seattle Girls' School has proven to be the best decision we could have made for our now 7th grade daughter. The integrated curriculum, hands on learning and remarkable commitment of the staff has exceeded all expectations.
Check how many students pulled out since a change in the head of shcool. The bullying here is not only done by the students but staff as well. The staff here also enable wealthier parents to bully lower class income parents. HUGE MISTAKE putting my daughter here.
My daughter joined the school two years ago. At the time her math scores were beginning to falter, she had lost interest in learning Spanish, and was becoming shy. Now she is a leader at the school, enjoys math and science, and has made many friends. The curriculum is exceptionally well integrated, the atmosphere supportive, and the leadership exceptional. I can't recommend SGS high enough.
SGS teaches girls about their potential and all the girls who come out of this school know that they can do anything. they have the skills and motivation to go on into high school and college and get the most from their experiences. SGS, although being a private school, mandates that 40% of their girls come from economic situations that would otherwise make this kind of education impossible. My daughter was one of those girls. she went to be on the deans list in college and is persuing a degree in psychology, and on to a doctorate.
This school is perfect in all ways imaginable. I'm a student here, and it's my first year, and it's everything I wanted in a school and more. The education is amazing, project-based, hands-on material that integrates the latest learning technology. Although I love the education, my favorite part of SGS is the 'extra stuff'. Just some of the fun things we do include internships (every Wednesday afternoon, we'd go do our internship. Mine was making music and we went to a real recording studio!), after school sports (soccer, cross-country, basketball, lacrosse, skiing, and snowboarding), and getting leadership roles that make the school better. We have a student council, a student concerns committee, and student spirit committee, student ambassadors, and other things to come. I love this school, and I can't wait to get there every day.
