Here, children stand out without burning out.
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.

WES Students Recognized at the MAESA Scholars' Fair
The Mid-Atlantic Episcopal Schools Association Scholars’ Fair provides an opportunity for students who have excelled in science, geography, spelling, art, or multimedia to learn from their peers at other schools. WES students were recognized in several categories this year, including a clean sweep of the Grades 4-6 Science Fair!
Play It Forward
WES’s coaches know that playing sports confers benefits well beyond those of fitness and competitiveness. With a wide range of personal athletic experiences, from childhood to college to the professional level, they tell us about the lessons they learned along the way.
