Open Quote The school is very inclusive, welcoming families from a broad variety of backgrounds with Montessori and conventional classroom options. The teachers are top notch, an observation that I've heard repeated from parents who are or were teachers themselves. Enrollment has consistently grown over the years and test scores have gradually increased.

The PTA was reinvigorated around 2009 and coordinates its activities well with the school needs. Overall, PTA financial support has steadily grown from a few thousand to nearly $50,000. These funds are used wisely to mainly support teachers needs in their classrooms, as well as the library and technology center. There are many, many other positive things about the school. It isn't perfect, but it is very,very good and the trend lines are positive. Close Quote

Open Quote Shocked!!! Shocked!!! I have no idea why this school has only a one star rating. No school in Seattle is more loving, caring, diverse, socially aware, and proud. The PTA is insanely excellent, creative and resourceful. The student body is one of the most engaged my child has EVER experienced within the OUTSTANDING Montessori tract. Our Principle Toner is one of the most hands-on, hardest working, mother of twins -- School Leader on Earth. One only has to walk the halls to see the incredible artwork on the walls. Leschi participates with "Seattle Music Partners" for Orchestra and Band at NO COST to parents or students including musical instruments for said program. Leschi has one of the States best elementary school Chess Clubs, Reading Clubs, Language Clubs. I give this hidden treasure of a school 5 out of 5 stars and would happily offer 10 out of 10. Do not be fooled by such a ridiculous rating. It is no where near reality. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.

About Immunization Rates:
Kindergarten Immunization Rates: This graph shows the percent of students in the school who have all of the required doses for the vaccine type for kindergarten entry (complete). The following vaccines are required for Washington State kindergarten entry: DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis), Hep B (Hepatitis B), MMR (Measles, Mumps and Rubella), Polio and Varicella (chickenpox). The data comes from schools reporting to the Department each school year. Schools report total counts of students based on each student’s Certificate of Immunization Status, which is parent-reported and is not health care provider verified. The goal line is the national Health People 2020 target of 95% completion for these vaccines for school age children.
Protected Students: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have all required vaccinations for their age and grade.
Students with plan: The number and percent of students in the school with a temporary approved plan for getting caught-up on required vaccinations. These students can remain in school if they follow this plan.
Students with exemption: The number and percent of students in the school reported to have any exemption type for at least one vaccine.
Unknown: The number and percent of students whose immunization status is not known. These students do not fall into any other category – they may be missing required vaccines, but have no temporary delay plan or exemptions. Students with no signed CIS on file are also counted here.
