Washington International School
Washington International School (WIS) is a coeducational independent school (private school) offering 900+ students a challenging international curriculum and rich language program from Preschool through Grade 12.
Students in Preschool through Grade 5 follow the inquiry-based international Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Program (PYP) in a language immersion (Preschool, Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten) and dual-language (Grades 1-5) framework; in Grades 6-10 they continue with a multidisciplinary and inquiry-based approach designed to enhance understanding and develop the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the prestigious IB Diploma Program, the curriculum for all students in Grades 11 and 12.

In addition to their academic studies in mathematics, science, language, literature, social sciences and the arts, students learn how to be engaged global citizens. An active sports schedule, community service in Washington, DC and elsewhere, and travel programs for study and for fun take our students out into the world, while on campus they are involved in theater and music, art, journalism, debate and many other activities.

Our mission is to be an exemplary learning community - enriched by differences, informed through inquiry, global in reach.
Inquiry-Based Learning: WIS students investigate the arts, humanities, sciences, and technology through a rigorous, visionary, research-based curriculum inspired by academic innovators worldwide.
Global Perspective: WIS students study two or more languages, embrace diverse cultures and viewpoints, and have the ability and confidence to navigate a complex world.
Individual Responsibility: WIS students pursue community engagement and demonstrate empathy, honesty, and civility.
