The Field School is a small school on the top of Foxhall road. With a beautiful campus that used to be the old Cafritz mansion. If your looking for a school where you can be your own person ( not just a number), a place where you can develop leadership skills and learn to express yourself freely... Field is the place for you!

My experience at the Field school was overall great. I made lots of connections with not only my piers, but also my teachers. It's a school where you are free to be yourself while also figuring out what works best for different learning styles. While being there I didn't always feel like I was going to school, I felt like I was at my second home. The community atmosphere was such a great feeling and made it so much more fun to come to school.
Material is taught from multiple perspectives and teachers pay attention to each child's learning style. Small class size allows kids to bloom as public speakers and gain confidence as learners. There are high academic standards and expectations without competitiveness or excessive pressure. At times, the highest motivated students don't have as much opportunity for enrichment as in other schools in the geographic area and sometimes have to wait for their classmates to catch up. A studio period allows for each student to express themselves through art -- ceramics to theatre to rock band to digital media and no one has to give that elective up for an academic course. Dance (except for middle schoolers) and classical orchestra are missing. Even students with vastly different interests and different social groups are kind to one another; there are no "mean girls." No cut JV sports and PE options allow all students of all abilities to participate and to be active. It would be nice if some PEs such as Zumba or dance were offered all year long. Community building activities such as parent social and grandparents day keep entire families involved in the school. 6 years of languages are offered. Language and math classes can include range of ages from 7th grade through 12th and sometimes the classroom behavior of the less mature students can be a distraction for the older students.
