Emerald City School

A comprehensive, inclusive, and nurturing instructional setting for students with learning difficulties in grades 1 through 8.

We, at ECS, understand that different interventions vary in their effectiveness. Moreover, a “one size fits all” instructional approach does not serve the needs of every child. Whether your child needs help in reading, writing, math, oral language, organization, executive function, or social skills, our caring and skilled faculty will utilize methods of instruction drawn from the latest evidence-based research to ensure that your child’s individual needs are met.

We are dedicated to being nimble and contemporary as an organization – our approach will pivot based on your child’s learning patterns and responses as well as evolving evidence-based research. We are committed to serving the whole child in concert with his/her family. A team effort is a critical element to success.

Learning should be engaging and experiential. We take pride in exposing our students to the many and varied experiential learning opportunities that await them outside of the traditional classroom walls. Fine arts opportunities and educational resources are outside our doors in the heart of Seattle and its diverse neighborhoods. These resources complement the well-rounded educational experience that students receive while attending Emerald City School.

Our interventions include direct instruction and learning strategy models. We draw from the latest research, which has identified other successful instructional strategies such as:

Controlling task difficulty
Repetition and practice
Sequencing
Technology
Small interactive groups
Directed questioning and responding
Strategy cueing
Teaching for generalization
Monitoring student learning

Happiest of birthdays to this creative, pun loving, sweet 13 year old! We are thankful your are part of our ECS community! Your jokes keep up laughing and your constant kindness towards your peers warms our hearts!

Last Friday, May 19, the sun was out in Seattle and we wanted to be a part of it! So we took our learning outside. Math was all about movement and solving problems while hopscotching! Students also worked in small teams with chalk to play one of our favorite math games called Zoom. Post lunch, we went back outside for social studies in the park. A good old fashioned game of bingo centered around world geography!

With an outdoor loving staff and student population we welcome this warm, sunny weather with open arms and will be taking our learning outdoors any chance we get!

We are happy Nathan joined the Emerald City School community! Roo looks happy too. Welcome Nathan!

Emerald City School had the opportunity to attend STORM into S.T.E.M.! We had the chance to try out various robots, tinker around with 3-D printers, and watch other robotics clubs compete! We also cheered on the Seattle Storm during their game.

Who says you can't study geography outside? We loved taking our social studies class to the park. One of the major perks of our location!
