Our school is an independent K through 5th grade school located in Seattle's Ballard community. Our philosophy is based on a respect for children. We believe our small class size and personalized instruction foster optimum learning and create a strong sense of community amongst the children, instructors and families that make up Matheia. Matheia is a Greek suffix that means "useful learning". Matheia School seeks to provide a curriculum that will enable our students to use learning as a foundation for their future.
