WHERE EVERY STUDENT MATTERS

Welcome to Northwest School of Innovative Learning

NWSOIL is centered around behavioral and academic excellence.

Northwest School of Innovative Learning, is a behavioral, therapeutic and academic learning program designed for students from kindergarten through high school who are unable to successfully navigate traditional school settings. We offer a comprehensive and therapeutic program that helps meet the academic, special education, and behavioral health needs of students from school districts throughout the Puget Sound region. A full academic curriculum is individually tailored, along with therapeutic treatment needs.

Building a Better Community One Student at a Time

Our mission is to foster the social, emotional, psychological, physical, and intellectual well being of each child. We believe students must be taught, encouraged, and expected to take responsibility for their choices at school, at home, and within the greater community. Our school works collaboratively with parents/guardians, school districts, and other involved professionals to support the needs of each student. Through the services provided, our students can gain the skills necessary to return to their home school districts.

Guiding Principles

Community

Every student has the right to be treated with respect and to be appreciated for his/her unique contributions to our school and community. Each student is held accountable for his/her actions. Students are reinforced and affirmed when they choose to apply skills learned to regulate their emotions and behavior. They do this by helping to support the success of others and by participating as an active member of the school community.

Respect

Respect for self and others form the foundation for all interactions at NWSOIL. Respect for adults is expected and nurtured, just as adults treat students with respect. Student interactions are guided by respect for one another. This also helps to create a safe educational environment.

Self

Students are expected to arrive well-groomed and appropriately dressed. They are also assessed on whether or not they are taking care of themselves. Students are expected to take care of themselves physically, emotionally, and behaviorally. When this is too difficult for the student alone, each student is encouraged to ask for staff support in an appropriate manner.

NWSOIL Program Overview and Values

Our goal at the Northwest School of Innovative Learning (NWSOIL) is to work closely with school districts to create an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that suits each child’s specific needs. NWSOIL equally balances academics and behavioral management in the classroom by providing a strong core curriculum and implementation of mental health therapies and therapeutic interventions. Our students are able to acquire more adaptive coping skills through group therapy and behavior modification within a supportive and collaborative learning environment.

Be Safe. Be Respectful. Be Responsible.

Inspiring and Empowering Students to Excel in School and Life

We continually create, modify, and implement goals for our students so that they may rise to their full potential. The emotional, social, behavioral and educational well-being of our students is our greatest responsibility, and we are truly dedicated to their success.

  • We strive for all individuals to reach their highest potential.

  • We challenge each individual to become active learners and productive citizens.
