    Welcome to STEMbyTAF at Washington Middle School!

    Seattle Public School and TAF have joined together to bring a unique learning environment to Washington Middle School, starting with 6th grade students in September 2020.

    Our goal is to build a school environment that:

    • Redefines STEM literacy, equitable education, and what it means to be a well-educated 21st-century student.
    • Is known for encouraging innovation, for pushing the limits of what is expected, delivering curriculum in a way that is relevant to real-world needs and goals of students, and creating an environment that promotes academic success through a social justice lens.
    • Generates learning designed for, and often by, the students, where teachers collaborate as part of their daily practice and learn alongside their students
    • Has a bond of caring between all the groups—teachers, students, leadership, and support staff—where people look out for each other and students support each other to do their very best.

    We want Washington Middle School students to leave eighth grade with not only the academic requirements, but the habits of minds and social skills necessary to be successful high school students with a sense of direction toward their future.
