Secondary Boc

Mission Statement

Seattle World School (formerly Secondary Bilingual Orientation Center, SBOC) is Seattle Public Schools’ culturally diverse newcomer school dedicated to supporting newcomer students in an orientation setting and ELL High School students studying towards graduation.

Description

The SBOC/Seattle World School was founded in 1980 in response to a large wave of immigrants from Southeast Asia. Today it is one of only a few schools nation-wide designed as a preliminary educational portal through which immigrant children pass in their quest for academic achievement and full participation in American society. Some students come with extensive schooling, needing only English proficiency and cultural orientation; others have never before attended school. In its 32 year history approximately 8,000 students have attended. Each school year over three hundred students attend Seattle World School. Students come from all over the world. Over thirty languages and dialects are currently spoken at the SBOC.

Goals:
To promote respect for our students and their native lands. To provide students with a foundation in English, science, mathematics, social studies, and in critical thinking. To maintain a supportive learning environment. To link students and families with programs & agencies that can assist them To counsel students in awareness of the career choices open to them.
