Who We Are

Kind. Confident. Prepared.  

Washington Episcopal School challenges Early Childhood, Primary, Elementary, and Middle School 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. 

What Makes Our School Unique


Our balanced and enriched program blends traditional and innovative best practices to build knowledge, self-reliance, and leadership that prepares students for success in a variety of high schools, careers, and life experiences. Our students stand out without burning out.


We are committed to helping our students become responsible, caring, and engaged citizens. The relationships developed from Nursery through Grade 8 provide a safe and comfortable environment in which personal growth is fostered.


Students celebrate the wonder of their educational journey through guided experiences, challenges, and learning environments inside and outside of the classroom to further fuel their health and wellness, curiosity, and thirst for knowledge.    


We are small in class size and large in heart so that each student can know others and be known among peers and within the school community. We promote and value diversity while seeking mutual understanding and respect so that all feel welcomed.


Our Episcopal traditions celebrate and cultivate respect for self and others, as each school day creates a context for moral decision-making, advances universal virtues that cross faith traditions, and develops a sense of service to a greater purpose.


Whether developing a scientific hypothesis, painting a picture, or learning a new musical instrument, our programs inspire the daily practice of creativity so that students feel empowered to form new ideas and novel solutions in a culture that nurtures thoughtful risk-taking.

“I never fail to be impressed with WES grads. They are articulate, poised, and comfortable speaking with adults. WES prepares them well to meet the challenges of high school. They are all-around good citizens."
