For prospective students and parents, the best first step is to visit the school and attend an Open House or Drop-In Event. Both events allow families to meet our Head of School and talk with current students, parents, faculty and recent alumni.
When arriving at Billings you will begin by registering at the West Hall, which on Maple Leaf Place, next to the Main Building, 7217 Woodlawn Avenue NE, Seattle WA 98115. (Directions)
Applicant students will be introduced to faculty while other guests hear a presentation by our Head of School, Ted Kalmus, about the Billings mission, educational philosophy, and the transition to middle school.
Following this presentation, students and families will have an opportunity to select from sessions held across our campus that focus on:
All Open House guests are invited to explore any open classrooms, talk with teaching faculty and mingle with other community members.
Saturday Drop-In Events are less structured than our formal Open Houses. They are designed for families who are already familiar with Billings or who would like a more casual visit opportunity.
Faculty, students and other school community members will be available to answer questions and provide detail descriptions of our program. This is also a great time to tour the campus during the daytime and pick up general school information.
Billings Middle School's Main Building is located at 7217 Woodlawn Avenue NE, on the corner of Maple Leaf Place. Our West Hall is next to the Main Building on Maple Leaf Place. Our East Village, with five classrooms around a courtyard and garden, is located on NE 72nd Street, near the corner of 5th Avenue NE.
Parking in the busy Green Lake neighborhood can be a challenge in the evenings. When coming to an Open House, plan on arriving between 6:00 – 6:30pm to leave enough time for checking in at the West Hall.
Metro bus routes #16 and #48 will bring you very close to Billings.
