Kind. Confident. Prepared.
Washington Episcopal School (WES) is a co-educational, independent school in Bethesda, Maryland that challenges PK3 through Grade 8 students to embrace academic rigor in an appropriately balanced and supportive environment. We are a diverse, inclusive community that respects individual differences, develops every child’s unique talents, and fosters learning inside and outside the classroom. Here, children stand out without burning out.
