The Polish School in Seattle (Szkoła Polska im. Juliusza Słowackiego) is a wonderful place which welcomes everyone who wants to learn Polish. Our students are children from Polish and “mixed” families, as well as English-speaking adults. Every Monday students of all ages come to the Polish Hall for classes in Polish language, history, geography, and, once a month, they learn to sing Polish songs. The school teaches literacy skills in Polish (reading and writing) and offers a solid grounding in Polish history, culture, and traditions. The classes are small and age-appropriate, the atmosphere is very friendly and warm, yet the program is relatively rigorous. (Yes, there is homework! J) We welcome everyone who wishes to learn Polish in Seattle. Come and join us, the more the merrier!
Enrollment begins each September, but you can join any time. Please contact the principal.
Textbooks can be purchased directly from the teacher.
They are chosen based on their quality, the needs of the students, and
Donations to the School:
The Polish School in Seattle is a nonprofit organization financed through student fees (tuition) and donations from organizations and individuals. Many teachers are volunteers, others are paid a very modest stipend to cover their transportation costs. All donate their time to prepare and hold classes. Parents organize and volunteer for special events and bring snacks for the children and adults on regular class days.
All donations can be sent directly to the school, or to the Polish Home Foundation. Direct donations up to $500 are tax-deductible and may qualify for the matching gift program. Your help will be much appreciated!
