I have grown up in money my entire life. This school reflects that in every way with its fantastic views and areas. One of the most recent beautiful additions was a butterfly garden. The addition of WiFi to the garden is nicely complemented by securely, which blocks every website that is needed for school projects so you end up using your personal computer or phone instead. My favorite thing about the school is that they would rather spend $300,000 on a “math plaza” which is a really just a slab of concrete that nobody uses than helping our struggling sports program or maybe replace the portables. WA Excels!

First year experience as a parent. Child accepted via lottery to Kindergarten. I've found the school lives up to high expectations. I've seen my child grow in her knowledge. After school programs are excellent, and very cost effective. She's able to be exposed to mandarin Chinese, perform Scottish dancing, and even begin to learn the basics of computer coding. It's a K-12 school, so this would be the only school she attends, fostering lifelong friendships. There's an appeal to the small football team, in my opinion. Low student teacher ratios give your child a more attentive learning experience. Students are offered the ability to travel overseas to be exposed to other cultures. Let's just say there's a reason this school has literally thousands apply to the lottery each year for the opportunity to attend. 100% college acceptance rate, consistently ranked not only state-wide, but nationally. Very happy with our experience.
My youngest son began in the PYP program and I am surprised at how much he comes home talking about the Disney movies he's been watching during the day - instead of what he's been learning. It is surprising that students spend precious time watching television at this highly rated IB school - especially when kids typically watch movies, play video games, and spend time on iPads at home. Can't they spend extra time outside instead? Or perhaps open a book? Draw with friends? I am not sure if this is just an issue with the teacher, grade level or school, but am concerned. My local public school is beginning to look inviting, especially since state mandated policies are in place to prevent these type of issues. I am unsure if administration knows what is going on, but how could they not??
