Graham Hill Elementary School


Graham Hill Elementary School

Graham Hill Elementary is a vibrant neighborhood school located in the Seward Park neighborhood of southeast Seattle. Graham Hill provides an enriched educational experience for students focusing not only on their academic growth, but also the emotional and social development of each child. We believe that it is important to offer a curriculum that is well rounded and therefore we offer all students opportunities in the Arts as well as our strong academic programs.

We pride ourselves on a positive school climate in which our staff of committed professionals strives for excellence. We offer a caring, nurturing learning environment. The fourth “R” — respect for oneself and others — is a top priority. Students are at the center of what we do surrounded by supportive staff and parents who do a whale of a job! Some of the highlights include
