Northwest Liberty School & 

Education Resource Center

Woodinville, WA

Northwest Liberty School is a unique resource for students, schools, and districts. As a fully-accredited, progressive, and independent private secondary school, we support all schools, their students, and our own students by providing surprising options and solutions to meet most any need. High school and junior high students flourish as we blend educational components into a cohesive academic approach.  It is our expertise.

In our first eight years, we are proud of the 3,700 students that we have served. From Seattle to the Eastside, Snohomish to Spokane counties, across the state to other continents, students need options that large and small, comprehensive schools find difficult to fulfill. NWLS supports all junior and senior high schools by finding academic solutions through educational choices.

Northwest Liberty School’s core values include:

  • Belief that all students can learn and be successful.
  • Build a sense of hope in every student.
  • Aim to address the whole student.
  • Bring flexibility to learning.
  • Provide opportunities outside of the traditional educational model.
  • Belief that all staff members and students are learners.
