Seattle is a city rich with neighborhoods. Concurrent with the development of those neighborhoods was the birth and development of neighborhood schools. It is the purpose of this work to present a brief history of each school that has operated within the Seattle School District since its origin, which may extend back as far as 1862, seven years before the city was incorporated.Building for Learning is available for purchase at Seattle Public Schools reception desk located at the John Stanford Center, University Bookstore and the Museum of History and Industry.
