Though plagued by a lack of diversity among the student body, the curriculum and classroom setting remains extremely open to change and suggestions by students. Taking a variety of courses is extremely easy and students are given freedom to choose their level of math, foreign language, science classes, honors/non-honors track, and electives. However, the greatest strength in the school is their ability to prepare students to share their ideas in a clear and understandable fashion. All classes include a presentation element since the first day of sixth grade or freshman year. With the construction of the new STREAM building and a new Middle School building on the way, the facilities are new and clean. Students are also able to pursue a variety of extracurricular activities and travel experiences.
Review Seattle Academy
Seattle Academy has a huge variety of opportunities to take part in. There are a lot of amazing artists, who do anything from painting to film making. The speech and debate team is the best in the state, having won the state championship 11 times total and 9 years in a row. I'm part of the team, and love competing in the state and nationally. Most teachers, especially in the humanities, are very good and create interesting classes with lively discussions. The math department is also strong, with many students taking math all the way up to Calc 2. However, the science department is weaker and they need to overhaul the curriculum. The facilities, especially the new STREAM building, are great, and the location in the middle of Capitol Hill, right in the city, creates an energetic vibe. I would wholeheartedly recommend Seattle Academy to anyone who wants to learn not just in the class room but also outside, and who is not afraid of performing.
I have had a great time at Seattle Academy. I have attended the school since the 6th grade, and I am so happy that I will be finishing my senior year here. One of my favorite aspects of SAAS is the amount of freedom and responsibility we are given. It provides us with an environment where it is okay to make mistakes and learn from them to grow into better people.
