Well-Being – We believe that all students must be safe and feel a sense of belonging if they are to succeed. It is our responsibility to create safe and inclusive learning communities in every school where every student and family is valued and welcomed.

Here are some of the initiatives for 2021-22 around Well-Being:

  • Launched the Academy for Creating Excellence (ACE) to provide mentorship, support and belonging for Black/African American males.
  • Partnered with the Lake Washington Schools Foundation to make Youth Mental Health First Aid training available for all LWSD staff.
  • Continued to offer high school student support groups in partnership with EvergreenHealth.
  • Continued to offer parent support groups in partnership with Balance in Mind and SeaMar.
Students cite strong, supportive relationships within and beyond school



While students report strong school safety scores, keep an eye on the direction it's heading
