At Dearborn Park Elementary we respect and celebrate the wealth and vitality of the ethnic and cultural traditions that abound in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood. We have a wonderfully diverse faculty and staff who not only have excellent educational credentials, but also bring to their classrooms many personal interests and passions. We offer integrated, hands-on, project-based instruction for all students at every grade level, supported by a centrally located media center, a fully equipped computer lab, and every classroom has internet access. Our partnerships with an amazing range of community organizations, local businesses, and government agencies enrich and extend student learning in many areas. Other school programs include Dance Chance with Pacific Northwest Ballet and Publishing Club with WordPlay Writing & Editing Services. In addition, the Boeing Bluebills, the Rainier Chamber of Commerce, Pizza Time, and the Seattle Chinese Alliance Church generously supply resources for a variety of applications.
