In 2019 the district teamed up with the LWPTSA Council to create an International Families Welcome – World Video so that we can learn from the unique perspectives of our parents in how they and their children view the school experience. This sharing of information helps to inform our school district as to needs of the growing international community. Finally, international families new to the district can learn from these parents about what to expect from Lake Washington schools and how to get involved.
