Washington Latin PCS is a great school! I’ve been affiliated with this community since the 5th grade. This school offers a wide range of classes such as: Arabic, Robotics, DC History and Astronomy. I was one of a few students who studied Arabic and travel to Morroco for spring break. Overall, Washington Latin has amazing networking and traveling opportunities for the students. The only thing worth changing is the food.

Ive been at this school for 8 years. I truly believe it has been the best education for me, and prepared me well to apply, get into, and eventually to attend my top college. The school’s philosophy manifests in small classes with ridiculously invested, creative, engaged, thoughtful teachers who are accommodating of all their students; an intensive writing component to all classes that prepares students amazingly well for standardized tests and college essays; and a fiercely supportive community.
My school is very challenging academically; however, the support from the teachers and students is astounding. The community is diverse and incredibly encouraging and caring. The opportunities that the school provides are numerous. Additionally, the teachers genuinely want the students to succeed and they work hard to provide a complete education.
