Professional Development at CHDS

2018 Capital Area Progressive Schools (CAPS) Symposium Global Competency Round Table

On May 16, 2018, Capitol Hill Day School hosted a round table discussion on practices for building global competency in our school communities. As part of a school-wide initiative, our professional development group has explored best practices, resources, and curriculum on global competency. This sharing opportunity among faculty at progressive schools strengthened our partnerships and expanded our own practices.

Our Commitment to Social Justice

Capitol Hill Day School is located in a wonderfully complex community and is part of an even more complex world. We are surrounded by neighborhoods that are rich with culture, viewpoints, and experiences. With the goal of engaging students with this abundance of perspectives, Capitol Hill Day School has worked to deepen our ongoing commitment to social justice education. Teachers strive to prepare students to live a productive life of purpose and value, and a large part of succeeding at this goal is building empathy and tolerance towards others — character traits that help students successfully engage in a multicultural, complex world.
