Our History

25 Years of excellence



In March, 1998 Laura and Joe Drovetto, the founders of Snoqualmie Springs School, purchased an existing five bedroom four bathroom, bed and breakfast with the intentions of converting it into an all day Kindergarten School. After obtaining the necessary permits and licenses, the doors opened on September 7, 1998 and class began for the first students at SnoSprings School. The school started with a class of three Kindergarten students which eventually grew to a maximum of 12 students within four months. The classroom was located in the current library media center. The remainder of the building was being used as a residence. Over a three year period, the existing facility went through a series of renovation projects. These modifications and improvements permitted a change of building use from residential to commercial “school”. This effort permitted the use of the entire facility for educational purposes.

Today we see ourselves as a close, family oriented, student-centered school. In that closeness, we find the ability to see the individual student and try to meet his or her needs. While our program is aimed at the average and above-average student, we have, over the years, reached out to serve those who may, in one way or another, be challenged in some areas of their learning. We provide an opportunity for a strong foundation in basic skills and seek to help each child develop a feeling of confidence and self-worth. The school respects the beliefs of children of all cultures and faiths and encourages all students to follow the traditional commitments of their own families. We are, in every sense, dedicated to our students, their growth, and their future.

Much work always remains as a school plans for its future. The staff and parents continue to provide suggestions and plans for continuous improvement of the academic program and take action to see that the visions become reality. The actions of our school community are conducted on a level that reflects professionalism and personal concern. At all times, the ultimate mission is the highest quality education for the young children attending Snoqualmie Springs School. 

Joe and Laura Drovetto sold the school in 2020, but are still a valued part of our team working closely with the new owners as project and operations consultants. Their unwavering dedication, commitment and love of education has provided us with a foundation that will carry Snosprings now and into the future.  We will forever be grateful for the amazing community that they built!
