Kind. Confident. Prepared.
Washington Episcopal School (WES) is a co-educational, independent school in Bethesda, Maryland 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.
WES Transitions to a Hybrid Model
Gov. Hogan released state guidelines for the reopening of schools on August 27. Along with the numerous safety precautions, the state will use two key metrics to evaluate whether it is safe to offer on-site instruction: the test positivity rate and the number of new cases per 100,000 people. The current data enables schools in Montgomery County to consider offering some on-site instruction under a hybrid model.
WES Community Names New STEM Lab
Earlier this year, we invited our community to help us name our new STEM space on our East Campus. We are pleased to announce that the community selected the name Dragon Innovation Lab!
