  • Best in Class Education Center
    Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress. In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.

  • The Bartending Academy of Mill Creek
    An extension of the Tacoma Bar Academy, the Bartending School of Bothell has educated students in the finer points of bartending and mixology for more than 35 years. Classes include a 40-hour bartending-certification program, which prepares aspiring tenders to take their place in the drink-slinging industry with lessons in bar etiquette, drink-making techniques, and more than 150 cocktail recipes. The professional classroom setup echoes that of an actual bar, allowing students to get a feel for each element’s proper place, from the sliced fruit and soda guns to the emergency manual that outlines exactly what to do should a horse, duck, and pirate walk in.

  • Camp Roots
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? We offer the Eastside's only year-round outdoor camp for children of all ages. At Camp Roots it is our focus to offer a variety of life skills learning opportunities for 21st century youth. Our learner-centric philosophy is Rooted in providing an Inclusive Environment for all learners. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? We provide a beautiful environment, high quality crafting and play supplies, and experienced educators. Students need to come dressed for the weather, bring a water bottle and a snack. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I believe that it is important for children to spend as many hours outside paying and learning as possible. It is through connecting with nature that we are able to become stewards of the earth. We all benefit from feeling connected to our earth and the people who live on it. What do you love most about your job? Being outdoors in nature with children. I had one camper ask me, "Ms. April, when camp is over for the summer what are you going to do?" My response was, "Keep teaching at Camp Roots." He said, "Oh, so you don't have a job then!" Exactly right, I never feel like its a job, its a passion.

  • Wave Aquatics
    The ability to swim allowed humanity to explore the seas, discover pearls inside oysters, and evolve arms devoid of inflatable muscles.

Working as a nonprofit organization fueled by the common purpose of providing students of all ages with a slew of programs and lessons, the staffers share their wisdom in Juanita and Redmond High School pools.

  • Red Emergency Prevention Services
    In 2011, a group of firefighters founded Red Emergency Prevention Services to keep local homes and families safe with emergency training and disaster prevention services. On certain days, the group’s off-duty firefighters lead CPR certification classes with responsive electronic dummies to help people of all ages learn how to save lives. They also contribute to the community by gathering canned goods for local food banks. Though that may seem separate from their other missions, these efforts help bolster community preparedness during disasters great and small. One-on-one, the team also conducts safety reviews in neighborhood homes and evaluates them on their fire and emergency preparedness. During those sessions, they check the readiness of smoke alarms, furnaces, and play kitchen sets, teach people how to turn off their gas and water during an emergency, and promote fire safety by cleaning out dryer vents.
