The school has a uniquely international character: the fact that 16% of its population comes from abroad gives students a truly global perspective. Regular participation in environment teams, which clean the historic building and grounds, and in the outdoor program, which offers trips throughout the region, teach responsibility and respect for the environment. Students graduate from the Upper School with a true liberal arts education. The academic core is a three-year survey of human society from prehistory through present day. Learning to analyze history from political, economic, social, religious, and artistic perspectives lays the foundation for college-level electives in the senior year.
The daily presence of international students from more than 12 countries creates a global perspective for our whole community and makes our population unique among Seattle-area schools. International students who receive ESL support are gradually integrated into more courses with American students each year. Physical education, sports teams, arts courses, class trips, the Environment Program and the Outdoor Program offer additional chances for interaction.
