Our Schools’ History
A Common Thread Connects Us
The city tore down Holy Cross Lutheran Church and School to build South Shore Middle School in 1973. Holy Cross Lutheran Church and School were grateful to St. Timothy for allowing Holy Cross to rent facilities.
The first official empirical research conducted with human subjects was in 2006. There was a review board approval on Apprenticeship Learning Models at Amazing Grace through the University of Washington’s College of Education. This marked the official ongoing transformation model at Amazing Grace for research into practice.
Amazing Grace School goes high tech, removing technology from lab space and integrating it into classroom subjects. 2009 also marks the first launch of one laptop with digital ink for every middle school student. This began the school’s global impact.
In April, research from Amazing Grace is selected out of 16,000 proposals through Blind Peer Review to be presented and published at American Education Research Association. It’s regarded as high quality empirical research.
In May, Amazing Grace made news in the Seattle Times for raising money for war veterans.
