John Muir Elementary School

John Muir Elementary School  is a culturally diverse school where students are nurtured and learning is celebrated. We are located in the beautiful Mount Baker neighborhood in the heart of the Rainier Valley.  All classrooms place a strong emphasis on reading, math, and writing basics. Our curriculum includes an inquiry-based science curriculum from the National Science Foundation that is taught in all grades, beginning with Kindergarten. All students receive instruction in visual arts year round. We have computers in every classroom and state-of-the-art technology capabilities. Before and after-school child care is available at Rainier Community Center, an independent, on-site childcare facility.

John Muir Elementary School

Overall Goal

At John Muir we want students to understand that they can and do make choices and that their choices make a difference. Their choices are their power; they matter…to them, to their classmates, to our community, and to the world. All people make choices. We teach our students about choices that are healthy for bodies and minds; about choices that can help our community and our world. We want John Muir students to understand their power to make choices and to make an impact. Our goal is for all students to find their power and use it well.
