Chief Sealth High School

Texto en español.

Chief Sealth High School was established in 1954 from the need to serve the growing and multicultural population of southwest Seattle.  When ‘Proyecto Saber’ (translates to Project To Know) pioneered in 1975 as a counseling and tutoring program for Latino/Chicano students, it operated out of Sealth. Throughout the years, the program became a force of empowerment for Latino students as it expanded to include not only academic assistance but cultural enrichment and interpersonal relations. Proyecto Saber became a bilingual liaison between school and home for families and a cradle for student organizations such as MechLA and Union Latina. El Centro de la Raza has also partnered with Chief Sealth to teach progressive Latino/Chicano history to the high concentration of Latinos that have have gone to this school.
