Nautilus K-8, home of the Navigators, is located in Federal Way’s Marine Hills neighborhood and serves scholars in grades K-8. Our mission is to Prepare, Inspire, and Educate all students. Our vision is to be a high performing school community with a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics that prepares all students to compete, lead, and exceed in an ever changing world. We are committed to providing a safe, supportive, and positive learning environment, and engage students in ownership of their learning and growth through project-base, collaborative learning opportunities. Scholars also benefit from an array of school activities and clubs to enhance their learning along with strong family and community partnerships.
