  • Recommended September 03, 2014 - My daughter started at Cascadia in Kindergarten and graduated this year from 4th grade. Cascadia has been the biggest blessing for our daughter these past five years. The school helped her grow not only academically but also helped her become a confident, mature, responsible and ambitious young girl. Cascadia has a rigorous academic curriculum and the school has helped her blossom into a fabulous writer, the language arts curriculum at Cascadia is one of the best in this area in my opinion. That said, the rigorous academic program is balanced with a fine arts emphasis that helps round out the kids. This combination and balance helps the kids in this school be really successful in some of the most competitive private middle schools in this area. My daughter has developed a love for the theater, all thanks to Cascadia. During her time at Cascadia she had plenty of opportunity to participate in plays and public presentations and these really helped draw out her personality. When you do a school tour at Cascadia and compare that to other school tours, it quickly becomes evident to you that the Principal of the school, Mrs. Franklyn, is committed to teaching and preparing children for their future. Her heart and soul is dedicated to helping these kids be the best they can be. I knew it when we did the tour and it has been confirmed through the years at Cascadia. My daughter will be starting at Lakeside this fall, confident that she has had the best education possible in elementary school, ready to face the rough and tumble of middle school and compete with the best and brightest kids in this area. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended September 03, 2014 - This is simply an awesome school!! Both my kids attended Cascadia Montessori. Older one finished last year and younger one still attending. We happened to send our kids to three different private school in the area, and I can definitely say that this is the school we needed from the beginning. Cascadia has a perfect balance of discipline, academics, and fun. The part that I valued most is, the confidence that my daughters have in their teachers. I can see teachers are so truly involved and committed to the students. Students have great connections with each other as well. It?''s not unusual to see 4th grader pushing 1st grader on swing or students giving each other spelling tests during after school period. Our experience with school is extraordinary. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended August 26, 2014 - Both my kids have attended Cascadia. My older one finished several years there starting at Pre-K thru the 4th grade and my younger one is still a student there. I have found that both my kids have really blossomed in the environment there, despite they being very different kids. One thing that really differentiates Cascadia is that the staff and director REALLY care about the kids and do the very BEST for them always. They are able to provide an extremely caring and nurturing environment for the kids. Given that most of the teachers have longevity in the school, they are able to KNOW each individual child to a depth, that is frankly unmatched by other larger schools. They then use this deep insight and knowledge that is built over several years to provide for the best for the children. The results speak for themselves in terms of the stellar achievements that the graduating kids go on to achieving in middle school and beyond. Nearly 100% of the graduating class for the past several years has gotten admission into elite programs at the surrounding public/private middle schools. At the end of the day, that''s the most important characteristic that you want out of a school. - Posted by Parent
  • Recommended August 04, 2014 - There couldn?''t be a more idyllic setting for a school than Cascadia Montessori. Nestled in a residential area with tall fir trees, yet just a stone?''s throw away from the Microsoft main campus, Cascadia provides a safe and nurturing environment with the added plus of convenient drop off and pick up for Microsoft parents. Each kid receives one-on-one attention that caters to their learning style and their comfort level as they advance through the curriculum. As an added bonus, Cascadia incorporates science, music, dance (hip-hop!) and a school play through partnerships with prominent organizations. Field trips to the Woodland Park Zoo and the Seattle Children?''s Theater provide a fresh venue for learning. After school care is available at a nominal rate, with optional extra-curricular classes such as chess, Lego and Bollywood dancing. But most importantly, Cascadia boasts a solid academic program. Each year, the graduating class (4th grade) enters high ranking independent schools in the area and the Quest program in the public schools. Cascadia?''s kids stand out in a class of their own, showing enormous amounts of confidence, clarity in thought, and teamwork, all with a sense of community. We couldn?''t be more pleased and grateful to have our kids at Cascadia. - Posted by Parent
