West Seattle school news: Tilden celebrates its 25th anniversary

(Photos courtesy Tilden School)
“T” is for Tilden, as in Tilden School, which is celebrating a milestone today – a quarter-century in operation. That’s Whitney Tjerandsen, Tilden director, who signed the papers creating Tilden on this date in 1985. She joined students and staff in a party with not only the mini-cupcakes, but also a round of “Happy Birthday”; we’re told she explained to the students, “We’re celebrating with you, because you’re the reason we’re here!”

Tilden is a K-5 school at 4105 California SW, north of The Junction.

    Happy b-day Tilden School! What a solid and wonderful education you provide young inquisitive minds in West Seattle. I love when people say – you can always spot a Tilden kid – interested, conscious, aware, involved, well mannered and with a sense of self and sense of humor. Whitney and all of the teachers at Tilden – you are all amazing. Here is to another 25 years!
