Beyond the academics, WES offers kids opportunities to learn & grow in truly meaningful ways. My oldest just finished 4th grade in the spring & offers really my best example. In late fall, each 4th grader was asked to interview an adult in their life. Kids chose, parents, grandparents, aunts, family ...  Read more

Don't be fooled by this school. I know first hand that they did not care about the well-being of my child, but gave special treatment to others (who most likely gave money, knew someone in the administration, or were politically connected). Also, I can not stress enough, place your child in a school ...  Read more

WES is a wonderful school that has enabled my children to grow in a kind environment where they are challenged, but not overstressed. Emphasis is on the whole child. Middle School provides great leadership opportunities. That are unique to schools that end in 8th grade.

Poor curriculum and really overpriced. Not selective other than ability to pay. Many better options in the area.

Washington Episcopal School is best from Nursery thru First Grade. After that, the teaching is very spotty. There is loads of rote memorization and a very rigid cirriculum. There are many great schools in the Washington, DC area--this is not one of them.

Washington Episcopal School is a great school. The classes are fun, and make you enjoy learning. The teachers are especially fun, each with their own teaching style. Students get to experience a variety of activities and classes, making for well-rounded graduates. Study trips to Utah, Italy, France, ...  Read more

My son attended during the transitions year. The school is very rigid and does not appreciate individual personalities. It is VERY traditional and VERY rigid. Students either conform or made miserable. I do not recommend this setting for independent thinkers or self starters. If your child can easily ...  Read more
