The Island School offers Kindergarten through Fifth Grade children opportunities for joyful learning as they prepare to become effective world citizens. Small class size ensures our students receive individualized instruction and make lasting connections with our devoted teachers. Students and teachers join together to build strong academic foundations, and our caring educators feel honored to guide students on their educational journey.
The Island School is nestled in the woods of Bainbridge Island. Our physical space is warm, open and airy, giving children room to breathe, think, experiment, discover, create and play. Spacious, light-filled classrooms were architecturally designed to make students feel at home.
The Island School provides a diverse and nurturing community for children and their families. We are a school where respect and openness are embraced; where it is safe to make mistakes and learn from them. When asked to describe life at The Island School, one of our young learners responded:
“Friendship, care, learning, play, no teasing, no hitting, no punching, safety, knowing that you can trust people, gentleness, strong happy emotion, laughter, sunshine, learning, growing, playing, being yourself, wishing you could stay forever, never being scared, deep friendship, learning everything you want, learning things you didn’t even know you wanted to learn, finding all the good things about yourself, never wanting to leave.” Second grade student
