You'll find "home" on Bainbridge Island.


Located just 10 miles west of Seattle, the 30-minute ferry ride transports you a world away from the hectic pace of urban life. Bainbridge boasts 26 miles of shoreline and 1,500+ acres of parks, along with a low-key lifestyle. Whether you're looking for a simple cottage in the woods, an eco-conscious condominium or luxury waterfront residences, you'll find it on Bainbridge Island.



Ask a family for one of the main reasons they moved to Bainbridge Island and you will repeatedly hear, 'For the schools'. The Bainbridge Island School District is ranked #2 in Washington for Best Teachers and #5 for Best School District, rating an A+ for teachers and college readiness with an A in academics (2018 survey data from Niche).

If you're comparing the island's public schools to Seattle Area schools, Bainbridge is still ranked#2 for Best Teachers.

There are three elementary schools, grades K through 4, located in the south, center, and north ends of the island. Grades 5 and 6 are at Sakai Intermediate School. Woodward Middle School covers grades 7 and 8, then it’s on to Bainbridge Island High School.

Private education choices are also available with Montessori and Waldorf schools, and Island School and Hyla Middle School. Christian and Catholic education is provided at Carden Country School and St. Cecilia.

More than just a small town.


Bainbridge Island is a socially aware and culturally active community.  You'll find multiple parks with miles of trails, artisan studios, local food sourced restaurants, and numerous community programs to join.
