International Education

Overview


Seattle's International Schools provide students with linguistic skills, higher-order thinking skills, and a global perspective that will help them to contribute to, and succeed in, a 21st century world.

International Schools help students engage in intellectually rigorous schoolwork and prepare them for college, career and life. 

International Schools help close both the academic achievement gap as well as the “global achievement gap.”

Vision for International Education

Our vision is to prepare students, in partnership with families and community, for global citizenship in an increasingly interdependent world.

Preparing Global Citizens

  • RCW 28A.150.210: Basic Education - Goals of School Districts
    "A basic education is an evolving program of instruction that is intended to provide students with the opportunity to become responsible and respectful global citizens, to contribute to their economic well-being and that of their families and communities, to explore and understand different perspectives, and to enjoy productive and satisfying lives."
    (emphasis added)
