Employer Description
 

Lake Washington Girls Middle School (www.lwgms.org) serves 118 students in grades six through eight. Founded in 1998, the school is currently housed in a historic building in central Seattle, and moving to North Beacon Hill in fall of 2019. The School has an innovative and holistic approach to educating adolescent girls*—fostering academic excellence, creative confidence, positive risk-taking, and the development of individual talents. Academic core curriculum is enriched and stretched by a focus on performance and public speaking, an integrated arts program, a STEAM curriculum, and an outdoor education program. Social-emotional learning is essential and inherent in all that we do. Faculty and staff collaborate in developing, planning, and implementing programs, and our values of “Respect and Responsibility” infuse the school’s culture.
