Washington Episcopal School (WES) is a co-educational, independent school that challenges Nursery (age 3) 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.
Washington Episcopal School students stride confidently into the world, delight in it, and contribute to it.
Experiential Study Trips
We believe learning can and should be joyous, and we cultivate a sense of wonder, curiosity, and critical thinking through our experiential study trips. Whether it's traveling to a local farm so our Nursery students can feel the soft hair on a baby goat or taking our Grade 6 students to Utah to learn about geology, a WES education brings knowledge out of books and into the world.

Washington Episcopal School Reviews
I'm always surprised at how fast they learned to read and they're now writing stories at home...for fun! The school's focus on being kind, confident, and prepared is definitely the right direction and this mentality shows in each of their students. The parents with whom we interact are also very nice and some have become good friends. The administration staff is exceptional. It shows every day in every teacher and staff member. The head of school is out there every morning welcoming kids to school, helping with drop off, and greeting everyone by name.
