Traveling the world right from home

Students at Ben Rush Elementary School collect stamps in their school “passport” as they learn about world geography throughout the year.

Toys, pillows, coats and other items donated through Lakeview Elementary School's Winter Wishes program.

Through the Winter Wishes program, Lakeview families in need make requests through the school counselor. Other Lakeview families and the greater Lakeview community purchase gifts on the wish list.

Transition Academy

Transition Academy is a community-based program for young adults (18 - 21 years of age) with developmental disabilities in the Lake Washington School District. Students must have finished high school and be interested in continuing their preparation for work and life in the community.

Unlike a traditional classroom, the Academy is a base for "real classrooms." Those classrooms include a wide variety of settings in the greater Redmond-Kirkland-Bellevue communities. The curriculum consists of "typical" activities that occur in these "typical" settings. Students, families, and Academy staff work with a variety of agency partners (DDD, DVR, Supported Employment Vendors, etc.) to plan a successful transition.
