John Stanford International School is an award-winning Seattle public elementary school (K-5) in the Wallingford neighborhood. We offer a dual-language immersion program to all students. Spanish, since the 2000-2001 school year. The first Spanish immersion class entered the JSIS program as first graders and graduated in 2005. Japanese, since the 2001-2002 school year. The first Japanese immersion class graduated in 2007. Why Spanish and Japanese? These languages were chosen based on a survey of 5,000 parents and 1,200 business leaders. We're located just west of the University of Washington in the newly renovated Latona School building, featuring modern classrooms, high-speed Internet connections, a library with books in many languages and interior design elements reflecting a world culture.
