The Northwest School

The Northwest School is a diverse community of people who challenge each other to learn in a healthy, creative, and collaborative atmosphere of respect for ourselves, others, and the environment.

Imagine a school where learning is a joy; where the curriculum is designed to prepare students for a changing world; and where everyone discovers the exhilarating chemistry between academics and the arts. Now imagine a school where 65 of 460 students come from many countries around the world.

Welcome to The Northwest School, an exuberant place where our challenging curriculum teaches students to discover the connections between historic, scientific, and artistic fields of knowledge. And where our international character makes thinking beyond our own borders a daily reality.

Come join our team and then coach a team! We are looking for a boys soccer and a JV volleyball coach. More details on our website: The Northwest School, a college-preparatory day and boarding school in Seattle, Washington.

Free tonight? The NWS girls' ultimate squad is taking on Franklin High School for the state championship at 7:00 pm, at Neudorf Stadium (4242 S. 144th, in Tukwila). Come on out and show your support!

Tomorrow is the return of "The Bratty Comedy Hour!" On May 24-26, at 7:00 pm, in the main building theater, come ponder the existential crisis of the mayfly, enjoy a British farce, and see how two workers in ancient times find the meaning of life in three hilarious short comedies by David Ives. Then, close out the evening with a short film by NWS junior Peter G. AND, if that isn't enough, there will be free cookies and popsicles. Don't miss out!

The sun is finally out, and that means the plants are finally growing at our urban farm/garden.

Our dorm is not only a place for international students to live while they attend the Northwest School, it is also a boarding program with weekly Residential Life lessons that help students build community, develop life and interpersonal skills, learn about U.S. culture, and build a foundation for understanding social justice issues in the United States. It’s also a fun HOUSE to live in filled with a lot of activities, outings, events, and celebrations.

Our 11th graders are down at Helsing Junction Farms, helping provide a much appreciated facelift to one of the barns used for packaging on the farm. The students, under the supervision of NWS Facilities Manager Bob Martin (and all-around go-to-guy on all things construction) helped pour and smooth the concrete for the new barn floor.

Public Art students are beginning their work on a mural on Crawford Ave., right across the street from the school. First up, the canvas needs to be prepared!

Members of the Northwest School participated in Water1st's Carry5 event, raising a total of $13,105. Carry5 aims to highlight the nearly one billion people worldwide who don't have access to clean water. In total, Water1st raised nearly $215,000, funding projects providing 2,900 people with clean water and toilets for life.

Both our boys' and girls' track and field squads captured the Emerald City League Championship at the ECL championship meet yesterday! Congratulations!!!!!!

It was the last home game yesterday for our girls' ultimate squad. The "junior" members of the squad gave a proper sendoff to the NINE (!!!) seniors leading the team. Season isn't over, however. The State Playoffs are right around the corner!
