How are the school systems in the Bremerton/Seattle/Bangor area?  I have a dear friend moving there within the next year with an Autistic child who will be starting Kindergarten.  Any advice?

I lived out there and taught. From a teacher stand point Bellevue is a good district in Seattle area.

My brother and his wife live in Seattle, I'll ask if they know anything about the schools around them.

I'm originally from that area - I know there's some good schools in the tacoma area, I would definitely ask around and get some referrals.

I live in the area... Seattle SD's are definitely struggling and not the greatest.  I don't know about Bremerton or Bangor.  Most all school districts on the eastside (along the i90 or 520) are excellent.  You can't beat Bellevue.

I say Kirkland, Redmond or pretty much anything east of Seattle. An d there are some areas in Seattle which still have decent programs.

Unfortunately Bangor and Bremerton are west of Seattle and across the water.  If her family will be based at Bangor the eastside schools are probably not an option. :(

Calling the local school district is her best bet.
