History & Location

Nestled among trees in a park-like setting, the Good Shepherd Center provides an urban oasis for education.


Our Place


The lush green landscape of Meridian Park that surrounds the school is reminiscent of a country orchard. Enclosed by a tall hedge of holly and horse chestnut, the recently renovated playground incorporates art as thoughtful aesthetic features and feels like a secret garden. The expansive outdoor space (over 6 acres!) provides ample opportunity to move the classroom outdoors, and offers resources for creative play and physical activity – integral to promoting balance in our students’ lives. Click here to read more about the history of the Wallingford neighborhood and Meridian Park!

Our Partnerships

 Spacious and welcoming, the historic Good Shepherd Center is home not only to Meridian but to more than two dozen community organizations and professionals such as the Wallingford Senior Center, Alliance Francaise, Washington Green Schools, iLeap and Seattle Tilth. This collaborative environment offers enriching interactions for students and faculty, and models the many ways in which we can learn from those around us. Click here to read about the history of the Good Shepherd Center!
