wonderful program , so many interesting activities, my daughter used to complain of being bored in previous school now there is not a single day that She would complain. Loving staff , great teachers most of all good education !
This is an incredible school. As far as basic education you will learn more then enough for high school, you will also be learning more special skills then any other school through the Rites of Passage program and 8'th grade project. Many students of this school graduate to the best public high schools in the district with enough math skills to get them through their freshman year, along with the special skills I mentioned earlier. What special skills? The 8'th grade projects have ranged from science experiments to animations, all depending on what the student is motivated to do. There is no way to explain the Rites of Passage program within the limited review space, but ask any AS#1 graduate: It is incredible. Students come back to thank their teachers for giving them skill that saved their life in high school. Ask anyone.
This outstanding K-8 alternative school respects students and families as members of a unique community. Low WASL scores are the result of many parents opting out of high stakes testing. Very active site council includes students. Great focus on individual learning styles and acceptance of diversity in all areas.High emphasis on behavioral and social responsibility as well as support for all students to learn and excel by following their own passions and interests. Teachers and staff are called by first names. School has about 275 students. Classes are multi-grade, usually K-3, 4-6, 7-8, but open to students crossing grade levels, especially for interest area activities such as drama or art or some of the academic content areas. Highly recommended for the independent thinking, self-directed student and family. Siblings encouraged to enroll as well. Located in NE Seattle.
