The Meridian School is an independent school in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood serving 200 students in grades K-5. Meridian is located in the grand, historic Good Shepherd Center, a community building housing several nonprofit organizations, which lies adjacent to 6.5-acre Meridian Park. We believe that the challenges of our world require culturally competent, well-rounded, critically thinking individuals who are empowered to inquire, investigate, innovate and impact their communities.
The Meridian School cultivates a balance of mind and heart to nurture caring and confident learners prepared to thrive in and contribute to their local and global communities.
Individual Potential - We celebrate the broad variety of human potential by knowing and valuing each child as an individual with unique identities and passions. Students are encouraged to take emotional and intellectual risks that build their confidence, perseverance, and unique voices.
Inclusive Community - We work to create an inclusive and equitable community, where students, families, and staff from diverse backgrounds feel respected, supported, and a sense of belonging. We foster a culture of caring and seek opportunities to engage with local, regional, and global communities beyond the school.
Flexible Learning - We understand that each student needs different things at different times. We embrace diverse learning styles and provide an equitable education through a varied and creative curriculum that both stretches areas of strength and supports areas of growth.
Social and Emotional Awareness - We believe an understanding of emotions and social interactions is essential to the development of healthy individuals and communities. We provide tools and guidance to help students grow their self-knowledge and compassion as they learn to care and advocate for themselves, others, and their environment.
