About Giddens School

Giddens School offers Preschool through 5th Grade children a strong, academic foundation to prepare them for the 21st century world. Our staff and families nourish a wonderful sense of self and a genuine love of learning in our students. Children graduate from Giddens School with a strong academic foundation; they become curious, socially responsive, and creative young people who are well-prepared to affect change throughout their lives and are equipped with the skills and concepts necessary to communicate and learn effectively.

Giddens School is one of the most ethnically, economically, and socially diverse elementary independent schools in the Northwest. Within this truly diverse community, tangible experiences shape the way students learn with and about each other. Giddens students are given real opportunities to be active agents of their own learning.

An inclusive community is integral to our school and we welcome families who embrace our mission. For over 40 years, Giddens School has been dedicated to teaching an academically excellent, developmentally appropriate curriculum that stretches critical thinking, and encourages social responsibility.
