Summer School in Seattle

Denny International Middle School’s Summer of Learning


As August begins, the Westside Scholars at Denny International Middle School are finishing up five weeks of academics and enrichment classes. DennySummerLearning5

Over 200 scholars participated in Denny’s summer program this year which is funded by the City of Seattle, Families and Education Levy. The Westside Scholars Program is intended to offer extra academic support to incoming 7th and 8th graders as well as serve as an introduction to middle school for incoming 6th graders from all of Denny’s feeder elementary schools. The program is an excellent opportunity to become familiar with the building and future teachers as they transition to the next level of their education. Amongst the many enrichment opportunities such as Mariachi, Cooking and Cartooning, sixth graders participated in a unique Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) class twice a week that made science alive and active.  A tremendous staff of educators and community partners led and guided the scholars’ instruction and development.

Congratulations to our scholars and thank you to our staff and partners for making this happen for our community!
