Mission Statement

To empower Sealth learners to be of value to themselves and to others today and tomorrow.

The School

Chief Sealth High School has been recognized as one of the few Seattle Public Schools that remains a "community" school. Most of the students live close to the school, many of the alumni live near the school, and many of the students are children of Sealth alumni. It is an exceptional place that has, throughout its history, celebrated innovation and individuality. This section of the website explores Chief Sealth’s past, its current revitalization and its future as one of Seattle’s premier high schools.
