Washington Episcopal School (WES) challenges students to embrace academic rigor in an appropriately balanced and supportive environment.
WES's extraordinary teachers work each day to create an atmosphere of high, positive expectations, good will, and an appreciation for discovery and learning. They not only teach, they coach, sponsor, chaperon, and counsel. Faculty members and directors meet regularly to incorporate best practices and share innovations, and they are supported by the WES Professional Development Program, ensuring that each teacher has access to the academic and technological training and tools they need.
Here, supported by faculty and staff, children stand out without burning out. Students challenge themselves academically, physically, and spiritually, and broaden their world view. Life at WES is a constant adventure.
