Overview and Expectations
St. Anne School is strongly committed to individualized learning with high educational achievement.  This emphasis on excellence, within the context of a strong sense of community and spiritual development, motivates our students to achieve academically.  This achievement is reflected in student performance, not only on standardized tests, but in the fact that our students are very successful gaining admission to the high school of their choice.  The majority of our students attend Catholic High schools in Seattle and we frequently receive compliments from them on the quality of our students.
