ICO's work with Seattle-area schools is temporarily on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to resume leading trips again for students in 2021. We are now accepting applications for our January 2021 New Volunteer Training. Please see our Volunteer page for details & application form.

Showalter Middle School

<< Back to the Partners page.

[Middle School] The Showalter Middle School agency, founded in 2008, is located south of Seattle in the City of Tukwila -- just northwest of the intersection of I-5 and I-405. Because it is the only middle school in the Tukwila School District, Showalter draws students from all three elementary schools within the city. As a result, not only do kids from all three elementary schools have a chance to experience ICO, students from Tukwila Elementary gain long-term benefit from an extended ICO program (grades 3-8). Showalter's founding agency (school) representative was also the founding agency representative of Tukwila Elementary when she was teaching at that school. As a result, the Showalter ICO program benefits from substantial experience in setting up and operating a successful ICO agency. This includes working with Showalter staff to develop fair and effective methods for determining which students will participate in each ICO trip.
