Kind. Confident. Prepared.
Washington Episcopal School (WES) is a co-educational, independent school that challenges Nursery 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.
Although our campus is temporarily closed due to COVID-19, our students are actively engaged in our robust distance learning program.
