Jane Addams K-8 opened in fall 2009 as a K-8 empowering creative and critical thinkers who nurture themselves, their community and their environment. Jane Addams K-8 is an exciting program with an emphasis on environmental science. Along with a rigorous academic program the school offers an integrated Spectrum program for advanced learners, bilingual services for English Language Learners (ELL), special education services, and a variety of arts opportunities. Now that the Seattle School District has implemented the new school assignment plan, parents are charged with deciding where to send their kids to school. For those searching for a unique program and community where their kids will thrive, there’s a new choice in town: Jane Addams K-8.
