“Why is there an Eton School in Bellevue?”

I hear this question regularly during my annual classroom visits on Founder’s Day. The answer is just as meaningful in 2019 as it was in 1978—I wanted to provide a place where children could develop the necessary skills to succeed in life. I wanted their education to empower them to become independent learners with a deep sense of confidence and high self‑esteem—to achieve a joy of learning.
