The Clearwater School, Seattle's Sudbury school, is an independent school serving children ages 2-1/2 through 19. The concepts of Freedom, Trust and Responsibility are at the heart of the Sudbury model. From the earliest age, Clearwater students are free to determine their own activities, assume responsibility for their lives and govern their community democratically. In this environment, learning is limitless—students engage wholeheartedly in their passions and never lose their love of learning.
Clearwater students experience directly how their actions affect others and the community. They learn that using the strength of their voices can influence the course of their lives. Clearwater graduates move into adulthood as self-confident, articulate, resourceful and motivated citizens.
