Multiage sharing and collaborating at Lake and Park School.

We gain a new perspective plus greater self-confidence when we share and collaborate across our grades.


The Lake and Park School is an independent elementary school providing an intellectually broad, theme-based curriculum, from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade.

The school features:

Experienced teachers committed to fostering intellectual curiosity and its subsequent development, who strive to help each child achieve academic milestones in a way that is commensurate with a child’s individual learning skills, and who look for every opportunity to teach in a way that the child is “learning by doing.”

A thematic curriculum shared across grades responsive to ongoing cultural opportunities, seasonal events, and emerging interests as they occur. There is a balance of natural science, social studies, literature, life science and mathematics.

Physical activity is woven into each day: jump-roping, walking to and from specific destinations, ball skills, group games, ride toys such as tricycles, bicycles and scooters. We also introduce cross country ski and running, (in preparation for the Seattle Kids Marathon), swim, and roller skate.

Multi-age classrooms that facilitate achievement of individual academic milestones.

And, a close proximity to playgrounds, parks, and Lake Washington is part of our area’s Olmstead landscaping legacy.
