    Ida B. Wells School of Social Justice

    The Ida B. Wells School of Social Justice is located on the campus of the University of Washington. Our partnership is with the Office of Minority Affairs. This allows our students to participate in college activities that help enrich their experience on the University of Washington campus.

    Students meet each day for a gathering called “convergence,” which builds meaningful relationships that provide the foundation for the academic program.

    Social and Environmental Justice is embedded in our small college prep high school courses.
