Pre-K – 5th grade

Bertschi School educates children to become compassionate, confident and creative learners in a global community.  But this is not just the mission of the school, it’s also how Bertschi operates every day. It’s what we call the Bertschi Way, and it’s what parents, kids and visitors experience as soon as they walk through the doors.

Bertschi’s faculty know children learn in many ways and strive to address individual needs and abilities. Bertschi kids experience cross-curricular exploration and constant creative encouragement. Science, art, math, and drama projects are used to promote different kinds of thinking and fun learning experiences. Students’ interests are developed, discovered, and nurtured. The Bertschi Way means doing everything all the way with heart and soul and attention to every child.

Bertschi students are taught to know who they are, who their fellow students are, and the impact and influence they have on their community. Staff, teachers, parents, and students work together to establish an environment that is inclusive, supportive, and respectful. This is a school that helps develop thoughtful kids full of compassion, confidence, and creativity who are ready for the challenges of secondary education.

Bertschi School is a learning experience to last a lifetime.

University Child Development School
5062 9th Avenue Northeast
Seattle, WA
http://www.ucds.org

Since the inception of UCDS in 1911 on the University of Washington campus, our teachers have assumed the role of educational researchers as they designed, implemented and evaluated our programs. Today, as a professional practice school, UCDS is engaged in ongoing educational reform. Our school is a dynamic learning environment for teachers as we work together to understand and inspire each child that we serve. Like our students, teachers at UCDS collaborate with colleagues and support each other professionally. Each faculty member brings different expertise and experience, enriching the learning environment.

UCDS builds a strong community between students, teachers, staff, parents, Board of Trustees and neighborhood. Civic responsibility is central to the ethos of our school. Students are responsible for sharing their knowledge and talent in a way that enriches the rest of the community.

We teach children to listen carefully to others, to help one another, to share what they have learned, to coach one another, to participate in group discussions, and to develop areas of expertise where a child can assume leadership. We believe that developing tolerance for different points of view and empathy for the needs of others is essential to the moral development of a child.
