What Makes Matheia Different

We truly believe Matheia is, “the best small school in Seattle.” Not only do our small class sizes allow for personalized instruction, but the size of the school as a whole sets us apart. As a parent once said, “Matheia is like the best parts of a one-room schoolhouse meets small-group classes. Our kids get to experience both a diverse, mix-aged community while also benefiting from small, subject-oriented classes.” Come for a tour to see for yourself just how different and special Matheia really is.


Small Class Size

Class sizes of 12 or less with mixed-age learning opportunities every day.

Mission & Philosophy ›


Our Schedule is Different

Unlike most elementary schools that use a self-contained classroom model, our students move from subject to subject with teachers who specialize in reading, math, art, social studies, science, and language arts - in addition to outdoor P. E. and electives - every day.

Social-Emotional Growth

Social and emotional learning is integrated across school programs with an emphasis on building children’s confidence and interpersonal skills.


Incorporating STEAM Education

Our students get a hands-on education where science, technology, engineering, art, and math are used as tools to creatively solve real world problems.
