All Covered by Tuition
WES students are on the move and getting hands-on experience each year! Students take study trips around the DC metro area, in the US, and abroad in Europe.
Whether the destination is around the beltway to feel the soft hair on a baby goat at the farm or to closely examine the 470 BC Greek fresco Diver’s Tomb in Paestum, Italy, all of the senses are engaged. These first-hand experiences provide jumping-off points for students to ask questions, read more, and to explore and embrace the world around them. Our extensive and unique study trips program involve students at every grade level.
Like so much at WES, one experience builds on another, exponentially increasing the benefits. So it is with the school’s study trips, which progress through the grade levels, culminating in trips to the Desert Southwest, Italy, Spain, and France.
In recent years, students have ventured on various of Study Trips including the list below:
Grade 2: Chesapeake Bay, Washington National Cathedral, U.S. Supreme Court
Grade 3: Annapolis, Kennedy Center
Grade 4: Monticello, Washington National Cathedral, National Gallery of Art, Claude Moore Farm, Piscataway Park
Grade 5: Antietam and Harpers Ferry, Kennedy Center, National Gallery of Art
