Overview


APPROACH

At Washington, students learn to read books and solve equations, but they also learn to read emotions and resolve conflicts. Social and emotional learning practices focus on positive reinforcement, relationship building, and class meetings.

ENRICHMENT

Enrichment programs include a dedicated science and PE teacher, plus regular art, music, and gardening classes. Students also benefit from classes ranging from movement and dance to readers’ theater workshops through Berkeley Repertory Theater. 

FACULTY

Many of our teachers have won Prudential Teaching Awards for excellence and are GLAD (Guided Language Acquisition Design) trained, allowing them more skills to challenge every student at all levels. 

AFTER SCHOOL

Washington offers several after school programs to provide students  with a safe and engaging environment, and furthering learning and development.
