School Notes

  • Children are supported to learn at their own pace and receive developmentally appropriate lessons at Samish Woods. Our three classrooms are multi-age and based on a three year cycle. This provides stability and continuity for each child to thrive to their fullest. There are typically 20-25 children in each classroom with a lead teacher and an assistant. The school's campus includes a natural environment and creek. We are a non-profit private school formed and operated by teachers as a teacher professional partnership. Samish Woods is a Washington state certified private school with a limited number of scholarships available.
