With 48 schools and nearly 23,500 students, the Lake Washington School District, located in Redmond, Kirkland, and Sammamish, Washington, reflects the community that it serves — generally upper middle class, technology-comfortable citizenry, with student test scores well above national averages. The district's educational philosophy is clearly reflected in its widely regarded Student Profile/Curriculum Framework that outlines a students' learning path from kindergarten to graduation.
The Curriculum Framework has been praised in several national education publications for its comprehensive approach to student-centered learning, and over 100 districts around the country are adapting it for their own use. Incorporated in this "forward to the new basics" approach is the district's willingness to adopt innovative approaches to teaching that recognize the "one school fits all" notion of public education is no longer viable. Community-initiated schools and staff-initiated schools are eagerly encouraged.
