Reading together allows us to share the story.


The Lake and Park School is an independent elementary school providing an intellectually broad, theme-based curriculum, from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade, and is located in Seattle’s Mt. Baker Neighborhood.

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.

Note: A new Curriculum Overview_Fall 2013_UpperPrimary (PDF), for grades two through four, is now available for download here, as well as on the Curriculum Page.  Our students in grades two through four are doing some very exciting work! Highlights include the study of the alphabet—a wonderful place to begin—which brought us to the study of paper making, the printing press, and then story-telling with Roald Dahl! “In addition to letter-writing, newspaper stories, trip observations,
self-portrait selections, poetry, and character sketches, students are now working on developing family stores for a class anthology.”
