School Visit

Your school visit will include a deep dive into our time-tested educational philosophy and programming at The Washington Market School. During your visit, you will see our beautiful campuses, spend time inside our thoughtfully curated classrooms, studio spaces, libraries and gyms and engage in meaningful conversation with fellow prospective parents and members of our knowledgeable team.

Round Table Discussion

Following your tour and classroom observation, prospective parents will participate in a Round Table Discussion with two to three other families. This is an open conversation about your classroom observations and also an opportunity to ask in-depth questions about The Washington Market School. Attendance and participation in this discussion following your tour is a required component of our application process.
