We believe that the best way for students to learn is not merely through obtaining good information and executing good technique but through embodiment—entering into the dynamic dance of pursuing life with one another on behalf of ourselves and others. Students bring a richness of ability and desire to the school. Embracing a holistic model of formation, The Seattle School invites students to participate and create on behalf of their community. We are a living collage reflecting the vision, interests, passions, and personalities of our students and what they bring to our community during their journey.
