Cascade View is Diversity at its BEST:



The Tukwila School District was recognized as the most diverse school district in the country by the New York Times Newspaper. No more is the diversity component evident than at the most diverse school in the school district: Cascade View Elementary School.


There are over 35 languages spoken at Cascade View and the student body is comprised of students who come from all over the world. Many of our students come to Tukwila as refugees from their home countries. Cascade View has an excellent working relationship with the International Rescue Committee (I.R.C.). The I.R.C. arranges for the families to come to this country and in partnership we meet the educational, social, and basic needs of these families.


The Cascade View staff provides a safe environment so that all students can achieve at their highest level, both academically and socially. The staff presents lessons on a daily basis that are aligned with the Washington State Standards so that students are adequately prepared for their next level of education. Students are also provided with interventions and acceleration activities so that they can be supported as they work towards grade level standards and beyond.


A key part of our school’s success is the active involvement of our parents and community. The African proverb “It takes a village to raise a child,” is especially true and relevant for our school. We ask our parents and community to be our partners in education. Parent involvement is one of the key characteristics of highly effective schools. Parents can be involved in a variety of ways.  These include volunteering in the classroom, participating in our parent group, PTA (Parent Teacher Association), as well as chaperoning field trips and assisting with other school activities. Probably the most important part of parent involvement centers around making sure their child(ren) are ready to learn each day at school. This includes several important things.


The following is a list of steps that can help to make students ready to learn at school:


*Making sure that their child completes homework assignments on a daily basis and supporting when needed.

*Making sure their child has enough sleep (a minimum of 8-9 hours).

*Making sure their child has a nutritious breakfast.

*Having consistent communication with the teacher on their child’s academic and behavioral progress.

*Getting to school on time with good attendance.

*Consistently emphasizing the importance of a quality education and a good schoolwork ethic for their children to have successful and happy lives.


Our community also plays a key part in the education of our children. We encourage our community members to volunteer to assist in the classroom as tutors. We also have many key partnerships through our community businesses and agencies that benefit our children. We always welcome more of these successful partnerships.


In conclusion, a school is the most positive reflection of how a community values its children. The future of our community, state, and nation depends on each of the partners in education doing their best for our children. We, at Cascade View, promise our best for your children.  They are both deserving and worth it!
