- Bellevue School District 405
We have a great school system and every year we have new evidence that it continues to get better. Our "Great by any Measure" motto is derived from measurable results that show more students are mastering basic skills at the elementary level, and more students are taking challenging courses in middle and high school. Over the past seven years, Bellevue has worked hard to put into place an academically rigorous curriculum that connects from subject to subject and grade to grade across the district.
Bellevue has received national recognition for its stated goal of providing all students with a top-of-the line college preparatory education.

- Lake Washington School District 414
As a district, we are beginning a conversation with parents and community around Vision 2020, our initiative to transform our schools for students so they are prepared to thrive in the 21st century. The initial focus is on secondary learning in particular – experiences in junior high and high school. Of course, we realize that secondary adjustments can only be successful if elementary education supports the same goals, but initially, our planning work is focused on secondary schools. The educational structures and processes for secondary education we currently use were developed in the 19th and 20th centuries, appropriate for the needs of the day. In Lake Washington, our teachers and staff do an amazing job preparing our students. But they are doing it in a system that has become increasingly irrelevant for the lives that our students will lead. Our students can’t expect a 19th or 20th century education system to equip them to face the 21st century world.
