Academics

Mt. Washington School is a preschool to 6th grade neighborhood school that offers a highly competitive core curriculum with a strong, future-focused college prep program. We offer a diverse population with approximately 400 students from a wide range of backgrounds.

All students receive instruction in the core areas of reading, math, science, social studies, and writing — as well as computer instruction and physical education classes on a weekly basis. Art and music are provided on biweekly. Latin will be added to our course offerings in 2016-2017.

We offer band, strings, and choir to interested students. Our after-school program offers an extension of the school day where students participate in academic tutoring, STEM, art, and health and wellness enrichment activities.

Advisory

All students in grades 5-9 belong to an Advisory Team. Advisory Teams are made up of a small group of students and a teacher. They are a place where students make plans: for school, for college, for their careers and for their futures. This is a safe time to talk about barriers and needs; to be serious, but to have fun, too. Advisories are helping students build academic and social skills by breaking down barriers, fostering relationships, strengthening listening skills and, most important, building trust.
