Changing how boys are educated.


Seattle School for Boys (SSB), located in Seattle's Central District, provides experiential learning to a diverse community of middle-school-aged boys through a problem-based approach rooted in neural education. We celebrate creativity, invention, and holistic self-expression.

We've moved!

Seattle School for Boys recently moved into a larger space at 2100 E. Spruce Street. Located in central Seattle, near the Spruce Street Mini Park and the Rotary Boys & Girls Club, our learning space provides classrooms and community space to support the school’s program and allows room for future growth.

With students in grades 6, 7 and 8, Seattle School for Boys’ program, cultivated and delivered by its teachers and supported by administrative staff, is fueled by experiential learning and community involvement.
