Hamlin Robinson School
Hamlin Robinson School Photo #2 - In June 2015, HRS moved to North Beacon Hill in Seattle, with a new building entirely designed to support our program.
Hamlin Robinson School is an independent, non-profit, accredited, state-approved, elementary and middle day school. We ignite the academic and creative potential of students with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences. We are dedicated to providing a positive learning environment that will meet individual needs and nurture the whole child.
Specially trained teachers teach small classes using a multisensory classroom approach in reading, writing, spelling and all instructional areas.
The school's goal is to help students discover the joy of learning, build positive self-esteem and explore their full creative potential while preparing them to return successfully to conventional classrooms.

Such a great place for my middle school son! He has faced his reading difficulties, greatly improved his academics, and his self-esteem has soared. The environment is confident and kind. My son ran for his bus with a smile every day. A wonderful school.
