Are you getting ready to send junior off to Kindergarten next fall? Curious about the school to which your child has been assigned? Is your youngster graduating from 5th grade and moving on to Hamilton? (If so, lucky ducks for being the first in the new remodel). If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions, then I suggest you attend your new school’s open house. Open houses are a great way to meet the principal, get a feel for the school’s programs, and ask questions. Additionally, most schools are offering tours on select days (see below).
Seattle Public Schools has published an open house schedule online, which can be viewed here in its entirety. For the sake of our neighborhood schools, the following are dates and times for John Stanford International, McDonald School, Hamilton International Middle School, and Roosevelt High School–which is all of Wallingford’s attendance area high school.
Weeknight open houses will be held from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. and Saturday open houses will be held from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Where applicable, you can click on each school below for more information.
