How many openings are there in each grade?
Each year we begin with a new class of 32 fifth graders (two sections of 16). In sixth grade, 24 new students are added, at seventh grade 8 are added, and at ninth grade 11 new students are added. There may be additional openings due to attrition in grades six through twelve. Q6: From what schools do your applicants come? A: We receive applications from many schools including out-of-state and international schools. The greatest numbers of applicants live in Redmond, Bellevue, Woodinville, Kirkland, Sammamish, and Issaquah, with over a dozen other communities represented. Approximately 35% of our applicants attend public schools, 64% attend independent schools and 1% are home schooled.
