Seattle Country Day School

There are some children whose ability, passion, and curiosity are simply too big for traditional schools. They need a community of learners like them, plus brilliant, tireless teachers who truly understand them and find joy in teaching them.

These students do their best learning in a place where rigorous academics are just the starting point—where the day is often shaped by the questions they ask, and where a lesson plan is, by design, more roadmap than agenda.

Such students thrive in a place where they will internalize forever the understanding that having your own ideas and using them to solve complex problems is just as important as simply knowing the right answer. A place that gently reminds them every day: You belong. And the world needs your gifts.

For some, Seattle Country Day School is that place.

As one of our students put it: “I feel like a puzzle piece that finally found the right box.”

SCDS 7th and 8th grade class trip reveals were met with shrieks of excitement and abundant chatter!

Grade 7 students will supplement their Civil Rights Movement curriculum by visiting the South: Atlanta, GA; Birmingham/Montgomery/Selma, AL; and New Orleans, LA.

Grade 8 students will have the chance to behold one of the wonders of the natural world (Ha Long Bay) as well as the man-made world (Angkor Wat) when they travel to Vietnam and Cambodia.

The first day of school was full of excitement and engagement campus-wide. This week's Friday Flyer will feature more 'First Day' photos!

[09/05/17]   Happy First Day of School! This morning is the annual First Day Coffee in the Upper Courtyard from 7:30-9:30 a.m. Stop by for a latte and snap a first day photo. We hope to see you there!

Day two of SCDS faculty and staff inservice week starts off with a gender diversity professional development opportunity with the founder of Gender Odyssey, Aidan Key.

It's inservice week for faculty and staff here at SCDS. We are buzzing with new school year excitement!
