Washington Episcopal School (WES) is committed to helping every child become kind, confident, and prepared. Our students develop a moral and ethical compass through our virtues curriculum, where they engage with topics such as courage, humility, and compassion. They learn how to take risks and self-advocate, building grit and leadership. WES graduates also seamlessly transition to a wide variety of top secondary schools.
We cultivate a sense of wonder, curiosity, and critical thinking through our experiential study trips. Every child studies geology in Southwest Utah in Grade 6, explores the history and culture of Italy in Grade 7, and puts their language skills to the test in France or Spain in Grade 8.
