Bezos Academy Tacoma - Hilltop opened October 2021!

We’re thrilled to have welcomed new students to our preschool located at Edna Travis Elementary School in Tacoma, Washington in the fall of 2021. Our goal is to nurture the potential in every child to become a creative leader, original thinker, and lifelong learner by increasing access to early childhood education in under-resourced communities.

Thank you to our host, Tacoma Public Schools, for sharing our belief that all children deserve the great start that an excellent preschool provides. For more information about this partnership, please read our community host’s announcement from when the school first opened its doors.
