    Maple is all we could hope for in a school. The atmosphere is a positive one that encourages learning. The teachers and staff are warm and welcoming. The writing-based academic program is strong; the test scores are impressive. Parent involvement is excellent. We chose Maple over 12 schools in our area because it is truly international with excellent support for bilingual learners and a wonderful consciousness as part of a world community. The concept is an open one and that includes open-minded. Teachers and students work well together. Safety and community are top priorities. The principal is hand-on with a terrific vision for the school. Our remodel project has just been approved by the Seattle School Board; we will be adding a building expanding programs and opening an early childhood education center. If you want a dynamic school with a studious environment of diverse learners Maple is an excellent choice!
