Graham Hill Elementary School

Mission Statement

Graham Hill students will become lifelong learners and problem solvers. They will work to get along with others and respect differences.

Description

Graham Hill Elementary is a vibrant public school located in the Seward Park neighborhood of southeast Seattle. Grfaham Hill is the most diverse elementary school in the area.

Graham Hill provides an enriched educational experience for students focusing not only on the academic growth, but also the emotional and social development of each child. We offer two basic programs of study: Traditional for grades K through 5, and Montessori for grades preschool (ages 3, 4, 5) through 5th. Additionally we offer specialized instruction for our bilingual learning populations.

Our students have many enrichment opportunities including: physical education, musical instruction (Yamaha keyboard, vocal and instrumental), computer center sessions, library periods, an Arts and Academics Multi-disciplinary Celebration, Artists-in-Residence programs, and numerous PTA sponsored field trips and events.

We recognize that parents and families are the child's first teachers. Regular input from parents or guardians is invited. Our goal is to work in partnership with families for the success of every child. Families are encouraged to join our active PTA and to volunteer in the school as well as participate in the many celebrations and events we have throughout the year. We recently were awarded a Department of Neighborhoods grant to allow us to offer computer classes in the evening to our parents and community members from our underrepresented populations. Our goal is help all families feel welcome and needed in our school.

We pride ourselves on a positive school climate in which our staff of committed professionals strives for excellence. We offer a caring, nurturing learning environment. The fourth "R" -- respect for oneself and others -- is a top priority. This climate is enhanced by our Positive Discipline program and Anti-Bullying curriculum.
