The Meridian School

Description

The Meridian School (Seattle, WA) is an independent, K-5 school with a caring and inclusive community nestled in Wallingford's Meridian Park. Meridian is a place where the joy of childhood infuses the excitement of learning. By integrating curriculum, character, and community, we provide the foundation for well-rounded students. Our graduates are confident, capable, and well-prepared for the next phase of their academic lives. Our unique location in Wallingford's historic Good Shepherd Center situates us in an 11-acre park and surrounds us with nonprofit organizations such as Seattle Tilth, Washington Green Schools, and the Wallingford Senior Center. Academics take place in the classroom and out in the park, and lessons in the community bring by simply walking in the door. Our Mission: The Meridian School promotes a balance of mind and heart, of contemplation and action, of individuality and a commitment to the community. Our Beliefs: Curriculum should challenge, engage and inspire students. At Meridian, we provide an excellent academic education in which the joy of childhood infuses the excitement of learning. Character is built upon integrity, compassion, and responsibility. At Meridian, students are guided toward self-discipline and thoughtful decisions, mindful of themselves, others and their environment. Community is the heart of a school. At Meridian, all students, staff and families are known and valued. We strive to create an equitable and inclusive culture. Our connections are strengthened through close student-teacher relationships, strong parent involvement, and active engagement with our local and global communities. Program Highlights: Customized Learning, Global Studies, Place-Based Education and Service Learning Open House: Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 6-8PM
