Seattle Girls' School is a middle school (grades 5-8) committed to empowering young women to be leaders in their communities through a challenging academic program focused on collaboration, integration, and real-world problem solving. We are dedicated to inspiring each and every girl to live her potential by creating a diverse community of learners who are encouraged to be passionate, thoughtful, and respectful agents of change.
Through a variety of programs before, during, and after school, as well as its urban location drawing upon a diverse student population, girls will not only find ample outlets for their energy and creativity, but also opportunities to stretch themselves both academically and personally. At SGS, girls will have their interests developed, their ideas tested, their hearts opened, their confidence ignited, and their idealism respected.
SGS is accredited by the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools (PNAIS).
