Since 1964, Seattle Country Day School has been inspiring gifted children in grades K-8 to discover their potential through inquiry.

Small classes generate curiosity and innovation through inquiry learning, and provide opportunities for collaborative experiences with a curriculum rich in mathematics, science, technology, humanities, and the arts.
