Matheia School Reviews
Matheia is one of the best kept secrets in Ballard. We wouldn’t have discovered it as an option had not our preschool teachers highly recommended it. They sent their daughters there and raved about the positive aspects of the small school learning environment. We toured and applied to several private and gifted schools in the area, but Matheia stood out to us because the small class size of under 10 students offered something different, and the kids just seemed to be thriving. Because the grades are small, students integrate with each other through age groups, and there is mentorship going on at all levels. The kids rotate classes and so they get time with each teacher in each subject, and because there is so much individualized attention from teachers, kids are able to learn and accelerate at their own pace. Integration into Matheia has been seamless for our son. We’d highly recommend this school if you are looking to take advantage of the benefits of small class size learning!
I'm so happy that our family found Matheia! It is a very small school that has the feel of a cross between a single-room schoolhouse and a private tutoring program. Rather than the homeroom model used by most elementary schools, Matheia takes a specialist approach. Kids start the day in reading groups that are sorted by reading level, not grade. They then move through specialist classes with their grade level group, with a long break for a full-school outdoor PE and lunch/play time and with mixed-aged electives at the end of the day. What I love is that my son really feels like he is part of a bigger community, yet his core learning experiences involve such small classes that the teachers can truly differentiate for each students unique needs and abilities.
