I'm looking in the Queen Anne neighborhood, and I've heard that Capitol Hill is the best neighborhood (although not cheap) within walking distance of the school. I've also heard that Federal Way and Kent are good places that are less expensive but are still within a fairly short train ride from school.
Capitol Hill or First Hill are probably the best area in terms of distance, though the school is also easily accessible from many parts of downtown and from neighborhoods just south of I-90 like Beacon Hill. Queen Anne can sometimes be difficult to commute from, but it depends on how far north and west you go. Check out the King County Metro website to look at bus routes for any place you are considering moving. If there is a single bus that will take you from the home to school without a transfer, you're golden. Though you should also consider how frequently that particular bus runs (a bus that comes every 10 minutes is more than twice as good as a bus that comes every 20).
